As seen on my CV I am a Chemical Engineering student BEng (Hons) currently studying at the University of Bath, set to graduate in June 2017. I am interested in applying to work in financial services.
Chemical Engineering has given me a solid foundation as I have been able develop my problem solving and data analysis through work such as laboratory reports and process design. Experiments conducted with teams of fellow students have allowed me to show teamwork and leadership abilities as well as my ability to conduct research, analyze data and draw conclusions. Born and raised in Kenya and then a student at boarding school in the UK, I have been exposed to different cultures and opinions. This has allowed me to build relationships with a variety of people. I have always had an interest for business and have particularly shown it lately by participating in internships in manufacturing businesses. These experiences have garnered my interest in financial services as this is an area which allows the opportunity to analyse a variety of businesses.
While at university I have been a Peer Mentor, this has enabled me to help new first year students by advising them on academic, pastoral and social concerns. Being able to guide them has been very fulfilling as well as a learning Experience. Building relationships with people that have different interests has improved my ability to understand a diverse range people and build stronger relationships with them.
I have been a keen member of the Politics Society and Bath Conservative Future. These two societies have enabled me to meet people with contrasting view points and discuss problems facing millennials today. It has allowed me to engage in debates and understand other people’s viewpoints and keep up to date with current affairs.
