An ambitious and compassionate individual with natural leadership qualities however still able to work well within a team structure. Self-motivated whilst being able to motivate others. Radiate positivity and creativity within my work environment. Over the years I have gained professional experience across a range of fields from social media, humanitarian aid work and teaching to content production. A multi-skilled quick learner who can adapt to working in different environments and has worked on national and international projects. Always keen to develop new skills and discover new means of engaging with audiences and stakeholders. An avid traveller so attempting to visit 30 countries before turning 30 and writing about this in my travel and lifestyle blog. Fluent in Hindi and Urdu. Immersed in popular culture and new hubs of entertainment therefore fully aware and across the importance of social media platforms and their footing in the current digital landscape. A deep interest in world affairs and humanitarianism thus much of my time is spent volunteering for different charities. This has led to travelling abroad numerous times in order to plan, deliver and manage projects which involve the distribution of aid. I’ve been part of several livelihood and environmental sustainability projects in Tanzania, Malawi and Jordan which involved fundraising over £30,000, critically analysing problems facing the area, finding innovative yet cost-effective solutions and implementing them. Volunteering ranges from tackling local homelessness, organising events, making phonecalls to international aid delivery.
