Reporting Research Interviewing Sub-editing Proofreading

As a journalist for a national newspaper and a documentary filmmaker, I am self-starter who is adept at working both independently and as a team, as well as meeting deadlines in high-pressure situations. In my line of work, I frequently deal with people from all walks of life, from ambassadors to politicians to businessmen and the rubbish picker. A lot of my nonprofit work deals with at-risk youths and vulnerable women, children, and refugees. Working with them honed my ability to understand complex relationships and political dynamics, while still providing them with a platform to voice their opinions and stories. At the national newspaper, I covered in-depth national news stories, business, sports, and features. I also wrote a travel column as well as a column on social causes. With nonprofits and art organizations, I provide web content and content and layout for media campaigns.

People Management
(Intermediate) 7-9 Years Experience, (Currently in use)

During my time as an associate editor at the newspaper, I was in charge of training new reporters and interns. I taught them the systems used by the daily paper and consulted with them about the articles they needed to write for each week. As a media facilitator for various media organizations, I worked with both youths and junior staff members teaching them the different aspects of the film medium from pre-production to the editing process.

Project/Event Management
(Advanced) 7-9 Years Experience, (Currently in use)

My time working with art galleries in Mayfair, Sotheby's and the Serpentine Gallery also provided me with ample experience in developing and coordinating events. I worked closely with the galleries and artists, as well as art fair managers to put on the events. For the Mayfair galleries, we would have a monthly art preview and an annual arts fair. I am also the Education Chair of a regional youth organization in Asia, which consists of youths from seven countries (Indonesia, Philippines, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia). On the regional board, I am actively managing and supervising annual conferences across the Asian region. This includes two regional conferences per year in various host nations.
