Experience Summary

I have always been a fun and interesting character that has a lot to offer. I like to be everywhere all the time but the human body has its limits :)! I have been a part time promotional Brand Ambassador for 9 years and now looking for full time promotional work anywhere in the world. I have places to stay in: Luton, Hertfordshire, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Kent for long campaigns in the UK. I enjoy in my spare time Rock Climbing, extreme sports: I have been Bungee Jumping, Indoor Sky Diving, Zorbing (On hill and water), Regularly go to the largest Indoor climbing centre in Scotland and also been to the largest flying fox in the UK. I have a competitive edge that allows me to strive to the be the best at any task given. My best achievement recently was an article that was written for nightwalk 2012 stating: Loads of people who were chatting and waiting for the first design were pleasantly surprised by the first model who was the same charming and eccentric girl from the last year show. Getting most applauds and acclamations, she astonished with every design. http://giedreremezaite.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/574/ I am happy to work on any job given as I always put 100% into my work and can guarantee I will be an asset to your company.
