About me

 

After having graduated with a BA in PR and Advertising at the University of Navarra, Spain, I made the decision to move to England to have the opportunity to further my career in an industry I love and to develop my written and oral skills . Over five years on I am now fluent in English (both written and oral) and I have gained in-depth experience in a field in which I hope to continue to work. I am a motivated and enthusiastic individual who is creative, imaginative and not afraid of hard work. I am able to juggle my workload effectively and am equally happy to work as part of an efficient team as I am working under my own initiative. Having worked for a beauty PR agency, nail Brand, luxury womens footwear and a health supplement company since my arrival in England, I have developed the required skill set to be a successful and a crucial part of any team. But not just that, after reading your job description I truly believe I'm a perfect fit for your position since all you're looking for is all I currently do in my position at the moment. I believe you will find that I am very well qualified in terms of my academic qualifications and work experience. But having a gregarious personality and a desire to work in the creative industry is my key attribute. I would therefore very much welcome an opportunity to meet you and discuss how well I could contribute to your ongoing success. Please, have a look at my portfolio at www.thedrinkmepotion.com and do not hesitate contacting me shall you have further questions.
