I graduated from Cardiff University with a 2:1 in German and Italian (BA Hons) in the Summer of 2016. During this time I excelled in translation modules.
I spent my Erasmus year in Austria, where I worked as an English Language Assistant for the British Council. Whilst there I planned and delivered my own lessons and worked with small groups to improve their standard of spoken English. I also spent a period studying at Pavia University in Italy. I took modules on Roman and Medieval history and on the history of Illuminated Manuscripts. The teaching an examination process was conducted through the medium of Italian. On arriving back to the UK to complete my studies. During that final year I performed duties as an ambassador for the Erasmus + programme.
After graduating in the Summer of 2016, I completed a TeFL UK 120 hours online course prior to taking up a second British Council assistantship in Austria. I worked with small groups to prepare them for exams and planned and delivered lessons in class. Further to my British Council placement, I took up a role as an Engagement officer in the Volkskundemuseum Wien. This role involved producing research and reports for curators to aid in the development of exhibitions. I also translated exhibitions materials into English from German sources.
It is following my graduation (Summer 2016) that I started to translate articles from the Pan-European news website Cafe Babel. Since returning to the UK I have been boosting my translation profile, and currently also produce volunteer translations for the Children's Rights organisation Humanium and I am a member of the Translators without Borders team.
I am currently a freelance translator for several agencies. I produce translations on various specialisations and for several text types. More information is available in the Services and Translation sections.
I am currently completing a research masters course (MRes) from the University of Birmingham in Art History. My thesis is on collecting practices in the Early Modern Period.
In October 2019 I took up a role as an EAL mentor in Leeds
