First Class Honours Over the course of my university degree I have developed a number of useful skills including strong written, analytical and presentational skills; effective arguing abilities; and developed communication skills. I am most proud of producing my final-year dissertation titled: 'The Power In Language: Identity Through Expression In Selected Caribbean Short Fiction' for which I achieved a first class grade. Here, I interrogate identity in the cultivation of expression through a comparative analysis of the use of language in literature in the Anglophone, Francophone and Hispanophone regions of the Caribbean.
