I am studying public relations at Leeds Beckett University. I see myself as a creative, technology savvy individual who is always committed to the task at hand. I am a very artistic person and this is channeled into everything I do. I am ambitious, punctual and always strive to be the best.

As a young professional with 2 years of work experience in the industry I have a great set of skills to offer to any company. I am confident that I would excel in any public relations and social media environment. I can offer a hard working and willing to learn attitude to any organization. Alongside my studies I am a social media manager for Cohorted, an online beauty retailer. The first 3-5 months of this job was an unpaid internship. Whilst working at Cohorted my manager has trusted me with several campaigns, which has given me valuable experience and transferable skills.

A big passion of mine is travelling, which has expanded my outlook on different cultures and helped with organizational, planning and financial skills.

The main transferable skills I have learnt over the past two years are social media skills, analytics, digital marketing, Microsoft, Customer Service, public relations, management, admin, technical skills, creative skills, research skills, organizational skills, writing skills and presentation skills. My secondary skills that helped me in the working environment are that I am punctual, friendly, sociable and confident.

I have been recognised for my general performance at work and have been rewarded by monthly cash bonuses on top of my hourly wage.
