Profile

I am a language graduate with experience of living, working and studying in Europe. My most recent role is as an English language assistant in Vienna. Alongside my part-time job I volunteered at the Volkskunde Museum in Vienna. As a volunteer I primarily spoke German.
In the summer of 2016 I was awarded a 2:1 in German and Italian from Cardiff University. My BA course lasted four years, the third of which was a Year Abroad, split in two parts. I spent the first semester in Austria, where I worked as an English Language Assistant with the British Council in 2 schools. For the second semester I studied in Italy, at Pavia University. During the final year I wrote a dissertation on Italian Migration that was awarded a first class mark.
Aside from my work in Austria, I have previously worked as a general assistant at Sofa Icon.
During my time at College I was awarded the title of Poet Laureate alongside a friend with whom I published an anthology of poems. At Coleg Gwent I received four A-levels and an additional GCSE in Spanish. I have 11 GCSEs including maths and English.
