At 20 years old, I am a well-traveled student currently in my third year of (BSc) Event Management Studies in Dublin Institute of Technology located in the Cathal Brugha Street Campus. I have been involved in the Event, Tourism and Hospitality Industry through both my course of study and actively volunteering/working at events and festivals of all sizes.
As part of my studies, I have addressed a large amount of vital management subjects throughout each year, such as Human Resource Management, Applied Communications, Conference and Event Marketing, Database & Industry Studies and Financial Accounting, whilst I am also currently acting as the Class Representative for my current class group.
I am active seeking to further my experience within the Event Industry and I would welcome opportunities in this field.
