About me

 

A creative, loyal and proactive individual seeking a role within the creative industry. As a result of living and working in Hong Kong, I have gained a diverse understanding of different cultures and the importance of representing a brand to provide a first class service. I have therefore gained excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to lead and organise an event which I am eager to utilise within your organisation. I am currently studying at Quest Professional developing my event management and business skills, with the aim to pursue a career within the creative industry.
