Bio: 
I have been very fortunate in life and was always surrounded by loving supportive family and people. I try to live in my heart and be myself, to communicate rather then conceal whats going on in my life. No surprise this preference took me down the routes of art and music. I have formally studied art for about 6 years but have always drawn, painted and made things. Throughout school i was hailed as the artist, the person to go to if you needed help with a drawing or to ask if it was any good. I distinctly and a little embarisingly remember in primary school being asked by other children if they're work was good and always always telling them yes it was really good, i can still see that optimism and nature in myself today though balanced with constructive honesty. Animals and people have always been the crux of my joy and memories in life, I've always got a long fine at school, generally getting average to above average results flecked with a few distinguished outcomes and impressed tutors. At present living at home without much direction and feeling a little adrift at sea is a far call from the three intense years of university away from home, experiencing new places and working hard on my own projects for the course. I like to feel that i am progressing all the time and really dislike finding myself in feedback loops of days that are just like the previous days. Who doesn't want to help in someway and feel although they are a part something, or imparting something in someway. For me music and art which i love thrive amongst people and should be experienced with people, they are forms of communication a universal language that can penetrate deep and carry complex emotional messages between cultures and individuals. I have a really big heart, and a lot of patience attention and genuine care for people. I feel my empathy, curiosity and imaginations are endless and just wish to find a place that can nourish me and make the most of my skills. I am someone who benefits immeasurably from new surroundings, fresh face and from the feeling or outward appearance of development. Im really hoping to find opportunities to work with people, young and old, share experiences and create new ones, fill up on creativity and continue expressing myself. - I am a hard worker with three years university experiences and experience living by self and with others in two very different large cities in England. - Aspiring producer and preformed of my own music. - Continual artist, with experience using most adobe software, experienced and avid pursuer of photography - Love fiction books, and write my own lyrics and short stories, but sometimes pursue non-fiction - My dreams are a little strange maybe, to see a whale beneath the water in a seamlessly deep blue sea. To create an original animation, a comic, to complete a certain story I've visualised so many times! To make music or art with a particular group of musicians hailing from balitimore, to experience find myself deep in a tropical rainforest. I wish to find the determination and additional problem solving creativity to complete and record songs i have been working on, to find a beautiful place to live with sunlight and evergreen trees, ultimately i wish to be happy and fulfilled. Most of my dreams involve the world, its wild places and the animals who inhabit them, and secondly communicating myself to others, becoming a vessel for my own version of the beautiful art and music that inspired me. People are fundamental to my happiness, i can't be without them.
Volunteering Experience: 
I have assisted expeditions with the Duke of Edinburgh award, a charity run organisation that aim to get young people developed in areas of society, personal growth and skill building they otherwise may never develop or have the chance to. Amongst charity work, presentations before an audience, pursuing a sport and hobby the children are required to make an expedition over the course of a weekend in the countryside, camping and cooking for themselves, guiding themselves and prior to the weekend actually plotting a route to follow, taking into consideration busy roads, obstacles, no go zones and landscape gradients. All of this must be for the most part unassisted by the likes of myself or any other instructors and totally unassisted by mobile phones or GPS. Teams also made research along the way into chosen field i.e. Fauna, Flora, litter, pathways and so forth) I was in charge of pastoral care, which is basically map reading my own way to locations were we agreed to meet teams of young people and assessing through casual conversation and visual signs (or punctuation) how the team was doing, providing water and moral support, sometimes going afield to find a team seriously lagging or off course. The adult working team consisted of around 6 assessors and an expedition leader, David Goss of 'Zest for adventure'. We were responsible for relaying information about teams progress to one another and deducing the situation in the case of no visual clues. Overall this job required communication, friendly connection with the young people, patience, initiative and self organisation. i have also volunteered in a charity that ran two vintage clothes stores, here i was sometimes left in charge of the store for hours day. The kind of work was retail, customer service was paramount. A number of the people i worked with had social/physical/mental disabilities and were paid by the job centre to work at the clothes stores, i think this developed my people skills and i hope in someways i made there work a little brighter with conversation and support. In the past i have volunteered with art galleries and organisations involved in art, seeking work experience. Also the british heart foundation in my first year of university, again this got me amongst people i may otherwise never meet, i have always wanted to meet people of all walks of life.
