Experience

Babysitting September 2012 – August 2014

I looked after children between the ages of 6 months and 14 while their parents were out, taking responsibility for feeding them, aiding with homework, general housework and having fun in the process.

Assistant Leader at Rainbows September 2010 – September 2014

Arranging fun educational activities for girls between the ages of 4 and 8 whilst working with the other leaders to ensure the safety of those in our charge.

Volunteer at World Police and Fire Games July 2013 – August 2013

I helped make sure that all competitors were aware of the rules and regulations whilst helping them enjoy their time in Northern Ireland. I gave high levels of customer service in all aspects of the events whilst learning about different cultures and societies, and making new lifelong friendships.

Basic shop front work as well as experience in the stock room, cashing up the till at the end of each shift, and cleaning the store at the end of the day. Working with customers face to face has developed my social skills and I am confident when dealing with all types of enquiries.

Work experience at Harmony Hill Primary School, Lambeg. 15th – 23rd June 2015

Assisting the teaching staff and other members of the staff in the daily jobs in a classroom. This involved teaching a few students who needed extra support, supervising pupils at both break and lunch, helping organise a diversity day in which another school came to visit and I was asked to supervise those children as well and finally helping organise the end of year leaving ceremony for the children who have now finished primary school.

 

Key Achievements and Interests

Throughout my school career, I worked hard to become a Senior Librarian while volunteering as part of a team to help run the school’s book club, Page Turners, once a week.  As both a member and leader of the Drama Club, I learnt what it means to be confident in both your own and your colleagues’ abilities.  Regular volunteering and hard work as a Mentor in the tutoring programme led to my being appointed a Prefect  This, in turn, led me to volunteer at my local Rainbows, and church Sunday School and crèche from 2010 to 2015.  In 2011, I took part in and completed my Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award.

For years I invested myself in music, achieving my piano playing grade 2 and grade 4 Theory, whilst attending a stage school (Samsara set up by Samantha Mumba) for a year before it closed down due to lack of funding.  This interest in the arts inspired me to write and have 3 poems published.  Following this, I helped with the school play (Hello Dolly) as a member of the stage crew before becoming part of the technical support team that supported a drama exhibition in the Waterfront Hall, Belfast, as part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival.

In 2013, I volunteered at the World Police and Fire Games in Belfast as an aid to the competitors during their sports, looking after them and their families whilst ensuring each event ran smoothly.
