    First Class Honours, BA (Hons) History, Film and Creative WritingThe University of Hertfordshire
     - Hatfield, United Kingdom
    By studying a course with three different subjects I have developed a strong sense of time-management, but also a transversal and transferrable set of skills that have helped me into becoming a conscientious and informed writer. Degree modules include: o Film Production Wrote and produced a short film ‘Alma’, alongside two other colleagues in which teamwork and communication were key, as well as organisation and management skills. Achieved a First (78/100). o Final Project – Writing for the Screen Giving and receiving feedback constituted two of the most important skills, as well as self-discipline. Creativity was at the core of the writing of a feature-length film ‘Pink Lemonade’ completed with a grade of 95/100 (First). o Final Year History Dissertation Ran an independent research on the Portuguese cinematic industry during the dictatorship. The focus was on politics’ influence over the films produced in this period. Film Propaganda and Censorship: Politics in Twentieth Century Portugal was completed was with a First grade of 85/100.
