Personal Statement

Upon the completion of high school and being the sole recipient of the Business Management and Enterprise award for outstanding grades, it was apparent that a strong desire and focus within the field of business was alive. \n\nThe discipline of Marketing and an inclination for creative and critical thinking came as a natural choice due to a fruitful musical upbringing, which still shows its colours through the likes of Oakland - a Perth band which I have devoted the last three years. All the while, completing a Certificate IV and Diploma in Marketing and successfully advancing to my final semester at Murdoch University. \n\nThe last six years has also seen me advance to a manager position at a local IGA - a position which has bred loyalty, teamwork, respect, discipline and an extreme cusomer focus. Alongside my strong desire for success, these qualities have moulded and shaped a mature young man ready for the business workforce. \nNovember 2016 will see the completion of my Bachelor of Business with a major in Marketing. I am currently holding a Distinction (D) average.\n\n
