A highly motivated, trilingual student with a proven ability to work in a team. I am currently part-taking in my year abroad at Gakushuin University in Tokyo and I am working towards a BA Japanese degree at the University of East Anglia. My previous roles as a tutor, sales associate, student and volunteer have left me with exceptional organisational and communication skills.

Waitress at Alfred Tea Room in Aoyama. Work behind the till and waitress in both Japanese and English.
Working as a self-employed tutor alongside my studies also afforded me with a wealth of transferable skills. I was responsible for finding potential students, implementing individual lesson plans and adapting to each pupil. In order to turn a profit, I had to create a brand for myself as a tutor, market this appropriately and sell my services. I believe that this experience will aid me in a sales and advertising position where understanding audience behaviors and clear branding are essential.
I completed a placement as a Sales Trainee at Harrods, one of the world’s most renowned luxury department stores. This role taught me the importance of sales practices, planning and customer service.
