I am hard working and motivated individual who is currently at the end of my first year at MMU studying a Textiles degree. I have had outstanding experience, where I have learnt new techniques and expanded in areas that I had a main interest in such as hand embroidery. Each project has brought out my creative side and enabled me to show others what I am capable of doing. While being a full time student, I have taken a part time job where I have learnt essential skills that will be beneficial to me in any environment I am in. I have gained great customer service skills, the ability to work as a team and I am used to working in fast pace and challenging environments. This has also helped me manage my time at university, as I feel I have improved my management, timekeeping and organisational skills.

Also had work experience in WHSmith (September 2007), where providing excellent customer service was the most important skill I gained. Team work and working in very busy environments were also very essential.
In my spare time I enjoy socialising with friends and family as well as working part time at Sports Direct and concentrating on university work. I also swim and jog on a regular basis to keep fit. As I have an immense passion for embroidery, every so often I create embroidery samples which are mostly hand stitched. I also regularly attended art and fashion exhibitions.
