Lab work

I have worked in laboratories during my time at university undertaking a variety of experiments to aid my understanding of the subject. This has included teamwork, dedication and has tested my ability to work without mistake.

Leadership

During the completion of my Gold Duke of Edinburgh award, I led a group of fellow students on various legs of our expedition. This included navigation and planning. I also volunteered at a disabled riding school, leading lessons and teaching young people with disabilities to ride.

Dedication

I feel that my passion for the environment will motivate me in a job working with Greenpeace. I  am currently part of the Greenpeace Merseyside group and am particularly concerned with campaigns such as 'end whaling' and 'save the arctic.' I feel my dedication to the charity will fuel my work.
