About me

A visual communicator recently graduated from Loughborough University, specialising in branding and advertising, whilst being passionate in furthering my versatility to work across various other design disciplines. Please do not hesitate to contact me at: prem.y.desai@gmail.com My projects respond to my ambitions and explore fields of research and technological advances, such as motion graphics and AR, as relevant to contemporary trends in design. I am currently looking and open to design opportunities, preferably in a creative agency or within the field of sport. http://premdesai.com

Staying in my assigned cabin required me to consistently care for the children (20 on average), as well as monitor the work of my team of counsellors. My role at this camp was also to hold daily 'Land Sport' programs and activities for the children, which involved the likes of Football, Basketball, Rounders and Volleyball.

      Refugee Maths Mentor

      the baca charity

      Nov 2017 - Jun 2018
      • Loughborough, United Kingdom
      • Part Time
      • Baca supports young forced migrants who arrive as unaccompanied asylum seekers including those that have been trafficked, to rebuild their lives, integrate into a community and use their experience positively. This exciting role entailed me the opportunity to provide support to individual young people, to aspire and to achieve their full potential. Baca have created this 6 month mentoring opportunity with the desire to improve the education prospects of young people that are refugees/asylum seekers. I worked alongside a determined young person who had ambitious dreams and aspiration, which I helped them to achieve by providing the fundamental mathematical knowledge required to achieve their goals. English language is not their first language, so this form of mentoring was quite challenging, but a very exciting opportunity that I had thoroughly enjoyed.
