Personal Statement

Media and communication have always attracted me. I am incredibly passionate about the power of written and spoken word. This, and a strong desire to understand the world, encouraged me to pursue my bachelor degree studies in Sciences of Communication. My goal is to gain entry-level experience in a creative and challenging environment. I am a team-player with strong work ethics, excellent writing capabilities and first-rate communication skills.
