About me
- English Literature graduate looking for a job in the publishing sector, I am particularly interested in the marketing and publicity side of the industry. - I am creative and eager to learn which has been displayed by my taking part in extracurricular activities at university such as writing articles for the arts and lifestyle magazine Razz and the online newspaper The Tab. - I am enthusiastic, diligent and a good communicator - demonstrated by my experience working at a primary school, supporting children in their learning. - I am conscientious and a team player – I often had to work with other students as part of my degree course and also chose to join a number of societies at university such as the English Society.
