I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a BA in History in 2014. Following on from this I completed a CIM (Chartered Institute for Marketing), Certificate in Professional Marketing.
During my time at Leeds Met, I acted as a course representative, and went on to be elected Student Union representative for all course reps in my faculty. I sat several academic committees, including my faculty’s Learning & Teaching committee the university’s Academic & Quality Standards Committee. This gave me the unique opportunity to work alongside senior leaders in the university and provide feedback into the strategy, standards and quality of education in my faculty and the wider university.
I currently work as a Project Manager for QS Quacquarelli Symonds, the leading publishers of University Rankings, as well as running international student recruitment events and conferences.
Every year QS helps thousands of students globally fulfil their potential and goals through education. Seeing this everyday has made me want to give back to the community, helping support students through primary and secondary education and give them a solid foundation in life.
