About me
I view myself as a truly international citizen, having spent the majority of my life moving and living in different parts of Europe. Through these experiences I have developed the ability to speak fluently English and French, and Italian to a conversational level. In France, I was put into a French school without any knowledge of the French language at the age of fourteen. After three years I had integrated into the French culture, and had become fluent in the language. This has resulted in me being able to communicate and form relationships easily with various people from diverse backgrounds. I have a passion for photography and fashion. I am currently completing a Masters in Photography. Photography has allowed me to shoot various editorials for influential clothing brands. I have experience in fashion after working at Oi Polloi. I studied law at a degree level. I have worked in law firms. I am therefore used to working both in a team individually. Due to my fascination with other cultures I am constantly looking for new experiences and opportunities to expand my knowledge and understanding of others and myself.

    Sales AssistantOi Polloi
     - Manchester, United KingdomFull Time
    At Oi Polloi, I worked on the shop floor and behind the till where my skills lie in communication with customers and making them feel welcomed into the shop. I keep a close eye in the cleanliness and product layout in the shop. I am able to work in a team with my colleagues when we are under pressure to reach targets at busy stages of the year. I have gained a large amount of knowledge on the brands we stock which the customers greatly appreciate before buying an item.
