My passion for continual learning and personal development has seen me make many accomplishments already. Having graduated from one of Britain’s premier Social Science and Arts universities, in 2011 with a joint honours degree in Modern History and Politics; I then started to learn Chinese, became a professional teacher and completed training in health and safety, environmental protection and customer relations.
Having worked in the retail sector in the UK for seven years and then in education in China for a further three, it was by utilising my ability to learn new skills quickly and my high level of adaptability that I was able to excel in all positions I have worked in.
Possessing a strong ability to lead a team and control and manage situations has seen me run election campaigns, lead meetings and achieve high quality results. It has been through this, that I have been tuned my inter-personnel skills and can motivate others in a team to achieve more.
