Personal Profile

I am a 2015 graduate from Kingston University with a First Class in (BSc) Marketing Management. I am an energetic and ambitious individual, and my current studies in Marketing have made me a persuasive negotiator with good communication skills. 

My work experience as a Windows Microsoft Ambassador has equipped me with knowledge to understand sociology and technology from the eyes of a marketer. Moreover, I have basic knowledge of creating web traffic through Digital marketing such as Google AdWords and SEO.

I also attained other skills such as leadership and problem solving by managing a charity event called Battle of the Bands and through my internship at Landmark Group and Say Communications. I was awarded for my overall outstanding performance in both the academic year of 2013 and 2014 at Kingston University. 

I am willing to take up an employment/internship that will help me enhance and develop skills to build my marketing career. I am a confident and a quick learner of my occupational tasks, eager to acquire and exert knowledge with a positive attitude.
