Hey there! I am a recent graduate in the arts and culture field and seeking a job in the creative sector. I love learning about new things and being creative. 

I am passionate about -

1. Drama and the performing arts.
I attended theatre schools as a child and have gained professional LAMDA qualifications and hope to continue pursuing theatre in the future.

2. Photography
I have always loved taking photographs from the day I received my first camera when I was 11. I now regularly take photos of things I find interesting and hope to improve my photography skills. Take a look at some of the photos I have taken in the featured gallery! 

3. Film
I love watching films and find how they are made so fascinating that I have been on several filmmaking courses to learn the arts of filmmaking. I have even created my own short film when I went travelling as a reminder of the awesome adventure. 

4. Culture
I believe that culture is our way of understanding the world. Each culture is different and has their own rules and this is what makes the world so exciting! Travelling is a way of exploring cultures and is a fabulous way of finding interesting things in little ways. I enjoy visiting museums and learning about the history of countries and cultures and I find it is a particularly engaging way in discovering new facts and information. 

These are just some of the things that drive me and increase my motivation and happiness! I also take part in volunteering opportunities; I volunteered at a national film festival Empire Live and at music festivals including British Summer Time. I also acted as a drama teacher's assistant at a secondary school whilst being at university. These experiences have helped me gain new skills, improve existing skills and meet new people and above all do what I enjoy!
