Nancy's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a highly professional, motivated and self-disciplined individual who wants to develop all my skills further.

I am not afraid to approach people, and am an enthusiastic, energetic team player who has a desire to learn and welcomes opportunities and challenges. I trained for three years to become an actress, and am really interested in combining my acting with promotions/retail work.

Before studying for my degree I took nine GCSE's (including Maths and English) and two AS Levels in Theatre Studies and English Literature. I am also an extremely active person who enjoys all sports and regularly attends the gym. I am a happy fun-loving individual who has a zest for life and achieving my goals.
