About me

I am a motivated recent graduate from King’s College London. I am keen for a diverse role, getting involved in many different activities as I am looking to gain as broad an experience as possible. In summer 2015 I interned with AEG Live at British Summer Time Festival, shadowing one of the event managers- some of the tasks I undertook were collating evidence for and putting together the Corporate Social Responsibility Document and aiding with ticket sales and collections at the box office. My work was well received and let to me being invited back to also intern at British Summer Time 2016. During my time at university I had backstage roles at our annual Greek play; my responsibilities included stage management and ticket sales. Finally, prior to university, I interned for a week at a digital marketing agency. That week fell during the run up to London Fashion Week and so I took part in a research project which led to me writing a blog for the company’s website (regarding London Fashion Week).
