A level English Literature and Language student-predicted A- who loves old and new pieces and poetry

Methodology

I approach most texts through themes and characters as this will tell you about the text and it’s context- something you will need to know to get a broader knowledge of the text and something needed if you are taking an exam

Background

I am a 6th form student who has got an A in English at GCSE and hopes to study it at Liverpool university. Other interests are sport, film and history

My responsibilities include setting out food and drink, constantly monitoring the environment for unfriendly behaviour and intervening when necessary as well as cleaning up afterward.
In addition, I attended Hope MK in 2016 and hope to do it again, which is a week long experience for young people. During this week we helped around Milton Keynes dealing with issues like homelessness, poverty and litter picking to improve someone’s environment. We also helped young children and gave them a safe environment to play and talk.
Baby sitting various ages for the past three years.
Waitress at a local pub, the Old Red Lion Great Brickhill for a year. My responsibilities included making and serving drinks and food. Made deserts and coffees, and cleared tables.

Skills;

Autonomous; Once I understand my responsibilities, I know exactly what I need to do and get on with it.
Organized; For the last three years I have had to manage my sport, education and external commitments.
Strong leader; I am able to control groups of people and bring the best out of everyone.
Open minded; I am open to feedback and can change appropriately.
Calm; Being involved in team sports I have learned to work out stressful situations calmly, and been able to deal with them effectively
