Biomedical Research Scientist
During my time studying Biomedical Science at Plymouth Universitys School of Medicine and Dentistry, I assisted Dr Kim Tieu and his team by researching different cellular models and their potential to depict mitochondrial dysfunction in Parkinson’s Disease.
By creating and facilitating a variety of interactive workshops on self-development and leadership topics for Camp Hazen YMCAs Youth Leadership Program. I helped to develop self-confidence and valuable life skills through camping experiences, to build healthy bodies, open minds and awakened spirits.
I have bartended in various glamourous and non-glamorous bars throughout the years. Highlights include: Working in the Zagame and Ferrari boxes, during the Melbourne F1 Grand Prix; Bartending at Mudbrick, a prestigious New Zealand vineyard, and perfecting my 'flair' cocktail making in Australia!
Project Leader at the Special Olympics
The project aims to help disabled adults achieve in sports. I assisted in the running of all sports sessions and adapted the activities to each of the member’s needs. I also marketed and managed the project for all of the volunteers.
Social and Market Research Interviewer
Working independently under a strict time constraint my role was to collect data on the response to the Bowel Cancer Institutes’ media campaign. Unbiased and precise documentation of data was essential to ensure research guidelines were adhered to.
We promoted companies and their products through face to face communication. As part of their leadership team, I helped train new brand ambassadors in sales and ran 'impact meetings' on relevant topics. It was a solely performance-based role.
Volunteer Committee Member
Plymouth Universities Volunteer Committee we would meet regularly to plan ways to increase the participation and accessibility of volunteering opportunities across the student body. From this, I was awarded 'young volunteer of the year' at the Plymouth Inspiring Volunteering Awards.
