Recently Graduated (June) from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) with a Bachelor of Business Degree majoring in Advertising with a minor in International Business.

After completing a six week internship with OgilvyAction in Dubai, I am currently seeking a Junior Account Executive role within a top advertising agency. I am extremely passionate about marketing communications and in particular the potential of brand activation to impact consumers and change their behaviour.

I always strive to be an integral part of my team in work, sport or helping the community. My experiences through both geographical and cultural situations have helped evolve my abilities as a person – efficient, outspoken and determined.
