I am a 3rd year undergraduate student at DIT, studying French and International Tourism with a minor in German. Currently on an Erasmus year abroad at Université de Toulon in France, I am looking to undertake a 6 month placement in a role within the tourism industry in 2019. With 5 years of customer service experience, willingness to develop on my reception and admin experience and fluency in 2 languages as well as intermediate level proficiency in 2 more, I consider myself a strong intercultural communicator who learns fast and is able to adapt quickly to new work environments.
