In my commitments to The Cambridget Tab I both edit and write a large volume of copy on a daily basis.
Managing this alongside a challenging degree has finessed my ability to multitask and with extensive experience as a Personal Assistant I am able to take on numerous and varied projects.
Having come in the top five nationally in AQA board Art A-level exams I am available as an illustrator, confident in a broad range of materials.
