Things I like doing I love travelling and visiting new countries and places to get to know their culture. I also love learning new languages because it develops my communication skills when being on holiday or later on when I work in the travel and tourism industry.
Things that inspire me I look up to successful people such as Casey Neistat and Justin Bieber who started with nothing but got to the top through hard work and believing in themselves. I take an example from these kinds of people and try my best to be as successful as them one day. Also keeping my goals in mind such as travelling the world helps me keep motivated and inspired to work harder.
Things I do not like or feel uncomfortable with I feel uncomfortable when I need to speak on the phone through English being my third language; I sometimes struggle to understand what is said or the person’s accent. Speaking on the phone makes it impossible to see their gestures or facial expressions which make it harder for me to figure out what they may be saying. Although after speaking for a while, I get used to the accent which makes me more comfortable.
Reviewing of personal qualities and greatest strengths I am good at trying to understand other people’s views and coming up with solutions for a problem. I am very confident in speaking in front of people such as presenting a presentation. I am very independent but I also enjoy team work. Also I am passionate about helping others.
Skills One of my greatest skills is the ability to learn languages. I also have good customer service skills through my full time holiday job in turkey. I am very confident towards new people which would help me in future jobs when for example trying to attract new potential customers.
Experiences I have had previous work experience through my 3 months full time holiday job in Turkey. I was selling safari tours to German and English tourists.
Achievements and qualifications I earned my NCS qualification. Within these three weeks I also planned a charity event which we then presented in practice and ended up raising hundreds of pound. Besides NCS I was also part of the student voice team where we had another charity event. My job was partly organizing the event as well as baking cakes and keeping track or everything.
Careers that would suit my strengths  Careers such as a tourist guide, holiday representative and receptionist would suit my strengths because I enjoy communicating with customers as well as using my language skills. Also events management would suit my strengths because I enjoy planning and organising events and enjoy seeing the finished product in the end.
