About me

Personal Profile: • I am a hard-working and inquisitive with strong analytical, inter-personal, and writing skills • I have a proven ability to work both independently and as part of a team • I am an efficient timekeeper who always meets expectations • I have an even temperament and playful sense of humour • I thrive in fast pace working environments • I have a competitive nature • I am a confident public speaker • I am able to listen to others, demonstrating empathy and understanding My life work and academic experience demonstrates that I have strong creative writing skills which have been acknowledged both at my university and my sixth form college. I was awarded a “first” for my final year dissertation, “A comparative study on the presentations of erotic madness across ancient Greek literary genres”. The paper explored narrative technique and intention in Epic, Sapphic and Philosophic literature and it is this combination of research, organisation and presentation that I hope to build a future career around. During my undergraduate studies I wrote articles for a nationwide university online newspaper, and also spent a brief period as the newspapers fashion editor. My work experience has shown that I can both organise and administer events, and taught me that I enjoy social interaction and relish the prospect of working with multiple internal departments and external suppliers and clients. Like most of my generation, I am comfortable with most digital and social media, so I understand how to incorporate them into a modern and changing communication strategy. In terms of my hobbies, I am an avid reader with a love for literature which has spurred me on to start writing for myself. I enjoy all things creative, both playing and listening to music, art, and theatre.
