    About me

    I have just finished my contract at Parkdean Resorts as a dancer/singer/presenter. My Team and I created two shows from scratch with our own choreography and both of them had great feedback from the audience as well as staff. I was given a lot of hosting opportunities and that enhanced my presenting skills. I recently got 2 awards for giving outstanding customer service in August and in October.

    I did a summer contract at Hotel Bali, Medplaya Hotel, Spain, in 2016 being a dancer/singer in 9 musical shows. The most invaluable experience I earned was being the only main part, Alex, in Flashdance. I fully enjoyed the freedom in choreographing my own solos and carrying my character across the whole show. Apart from that, I gained acting experiences and sang solo songs in the shows On Broadway and Dirty Dancing.

    From being the dance captain and team leader at Warner Leisure Hotels from January 2015 to March 2016, I learned to work with a team as a leader from being in charge of rehearsals. From hosting activities, presenting on the microphone and socializing with the guests, I gained confidence in public speech and developed an outgoing personality to interact with people. I won me first prize in ''most mentioned team member in online surveys'' as well as second prize in ''best team member of the month''. From singing in cabarets once a week, I earned the confidence, skills and stamina to sing.

    Through working at a contemporary company, Haven holiday parks, Butlins, Warner Leisure Hotels and Medplaya hotels in the past four years, I grew as a dancer, as an entertainer and as a person. Maturity helps me to work as a team and be a leader while my cheerful and humorous character allows me to have constant positive comments from guests. I am confident that my previous performing and work experiences have well prepared me for making an immediate contribution to your company.
