Based on my Bachelor's degree in communications, I have gathered vast international experience in a variety of work environments.
Due to my strong interest in different cultures and languages, I have always sought to apply my communication skills in an international environment. Within the frame of my Bachelor's degree, I followed my communication studies at Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca to practice my Spanish and undertook an internship in event planning with the German broadcasting station Radio Antenne Bayern in Munich. Here, I was responsible for establishing and maintaining contacts with service providers as well as planning and supervising events, which I greatly enjoyed due to its high degree of face to face interaction.
In 2008, I moved to Syria to become proficient in Arabic and support the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) as public information officer, English teacher and assistant to the Special Assistant to Director. I found this experience greatly rewarding as it taught me to be flexible and find creative solutions in culturally challenging situations.
In 2009, I worked as journalist and photographer in Australia, followed by an outstanding opportunity to learn about political communication strategy with the German Free Democratic Party in Berlin. My tasks with the party included answering phone inquiries, supporting party campaigns and conceptualising mail responses as well as functioning as vacation leave replacement for the department's head secretary and working with online social media.
Together with my recently acquired skills in negotiation and mediation through my Master's degree in International Studies and Diplomacy, I am now seeking employment to apply my social, language, organisational and analytical skills to communicate most effectively in an international work environment.
