I am a young communications specialist, with a particular knack for English and Afrikaans literature. I am competent in fashioning creative communications for reporting, blogging and entertainment purposes -with ample knowledge on how to genuinely appeal to a modern-day audience. I have a good grasp of digital and print communications. I keep up to date with current social media trends and suited writing styles appropriate for each medium.
I have two years' professional experience in community journalism, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Science.
To date, I have had exposure to independent conducting of interviews and factual research, as well as converting information into legible, ethical and logical reports. I have also developed my personal photographic skill set to a professional level.
I am innately playful and free-spirited, but remain responsible and loyal towards my professional commitments.
Other freelance and temporary experiences of mine include promotional modelling and social media management. I also thoroughly enjoyed a brand ambassador role in a six-month educational roadshow, my main responsibility having been to deliver oral presentations to sizable audiences.
I am particularly passionate about contributing towards, and encouraging, ethical behaviour and quality of life -for humans, the natural environment and for animals, especially. I am striving towards a career in the wildlife industry. My ideal role eventually being to promote and preserve the unspoiled beauty of natural landscapes and exquisite wildlife that South Africa so proudly boasts.
