In 2013, I graduated in BScEcon (Psychology and Marketing) at Aberystwyth University, having completed MSc International Business Management in September 2014 from the same institution. In 2010, I was awarded with Excellence Bursary for my A-level results. Before, during and after my studies I have worked in several jobs. I worked at Elton John’s Mansion in Windsor as a Hospitality Assistant; I was a Team Leader in a restaurant; Marketing Assistant for a Mexican company; Business Consultant; and Student Experience Assistant.

Additional Interests

I enjoy travelling and meeting new people. I love to cook and play with my dog. I am passionate about social media and its power in contemporary marketing as well as in learning and teaching.
