I have recently graduated from the University of Portsmouth (UK) with a Bachelors Degree in Environmental Science.
Before going to university, I attended Osaka International School (Japan) where I have graduated with an International Baccalaureate Diploma in 2012.
Years prior to attending Osaka International School, I lived in England where I attended a private boarding school for 7 years.
The experience of living overseas and my years in an international school have enabled me to develop a flexible mindset and the ability to engage with people of many nationality and origin.
I have had several part time work and volunteering experiences both in Japan and England. These experiences have enabled me to develop organizational, leadership, communicative and teamwork skills, as described in further detail in the work/volunteer sections below.

Currently in search of work back in Japan where I will be able to utilise my fluency in English.
I hope to find a workplace in which, I will have the opportunity to constantly challenge myself to do better and learn new skills, as well as polish up on the skills and abilities I already possess.
Ideally, I would like to work in an international work environment where I will have the opportunity to work with people from around the globe to be able to widen my network of connections on a more multi-national scale.
