About me

 

A proactive and adaptable Media Communications graduate of the University of the Arts London, seeking a position in line with my cross-disciplinary experience and interest in the creative industries. During my undergraduate studies, I successfully combined academics with work experience - ranging from self-initiated entrepreneurship to skill-building internships - and other commitments, proving myself to be efficient, goal oriented, creative and structured, with good organisational and soft skills. Benefitting from a multi-cultural as well as multilingual background and education, I am looking to offer my services to a company with a like-minded ethos.
