About me

I am a 2.1 graduate in BSc Management with International Business at Royal Holloway, University of London. I have always been interested in business, its management as well as fashion (in particular cruelty-free), and I enjoy working in teams. I believe it is the best way to analyse and solve the problem as you gather many options together. Starting October 2016, I have started working in Marks & Spencer, one of the biggest British retailers. I have learnt many valuable skills, such as attention to details, communication skills as well as analytical skills. I have broadened my knowledge deeply about the retail industry, both by analysing the data reports, upcoming trends and closely communicating with buying and design teams. Communication with creative teams and is what made me realise where my true passion for career lays- that is within the side of fashion industry where the creative process happens- marketing and communications, social media and events. In summer 2016 I was an intern at Kaminera Group LTD, where I learnt about many business areas that the group operates in- international trade, hotels, energetics, real estate developing and management. However, the main focus was on forwarding, logistics and stevedoring. I have learnt how the company is managed, how it operates, and various strategies to expand the business as well as its profits. My responsibilities included analysing the data, helping to develop a new website for the company as well as LinkedIn, and I have also been given some reading material of International Federation of Freight Forwarders Association, which are required to take an examination of FIATA. In summer 2015 I have worked in two completely different environments, which I believe shows an ability to adapt. One of them being Associated Press, which improved my teamwork and communication skills. Furthermore, the internship at Wilmar Sugar International have taught me the mechanics of trading, in particularly sugar, including logistics. In summer 2013, I have worked as an administrator in hotel, which has given me an insight of the hotel business management, as well as consultancy skills as I was dealing with our guests on daily basis. I have client relationship-management, good time-management skills, team working, and IT skills. Throughout the years, I have developed good presentation skills- since middle school up until now I was asked to do presentations based on research and analysis. I have done several market researches, which includes companies such as Sainsbury’s. I was electing for school’s president, which helped me to improve my public speaking. As a management student, I have faced many course works that were based on research and analysis, such as market analysis. These studies have helped me to improve my current knowledge about business and management that I gained from high school. In terms of fashion, I have been always on top of all the newest trends, both in social media and fashion- I am a constant user of social media platforms mostly following and analysing new fashion trends and ideas, dreaming to pursue a career within a creative type of industry.
