Key Achievements

Studied History at University and gained a 2:1.

□ 100 Hour TEFL qualification

□ Completed A-Levels CCC grades.

□ 9 GCSEs all grade A-C.

□ Completed work experience with Radio Win FM where I was a News Researcher for the morning shows. This led to me co-presenting the Saturday Sports Show for the summer months during the 2006 World Cup.

□ Took part in various Judo competitions both British and European.

□ Pushed myself through various extreme sports.


I am very interested in different cultures around the world, in order to explore these cultures I feel a need to learn the language and integrate myself through work, to fully develop a sense of what the essence of the indigenous population is. I have experienced this through living in China and Poland, as well as visiting European Cities and spending 6months travelling and working in New Zealand. It was there I developed a love of extreme sports including sky diving, bungee jumping, white water rafting and many more. I think this proves a willingness to push myself to the limits without taking reckless chances.
