My name is Sofia and I am an aspiring environment consultant. My key interests are in travel, cultural and social exchange, environmentalism and sustainability.
Choosing a course that focused on my interests as much as possible, I have graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in Geography. During my time at university I was fortunate enough to gain a scholarship with the ERASMUS+ programme to study abroad for a year at Lund University, Sweden. From this study-exchange I not only gained a diploma in International Studies, but a wealth of friends from all over the world as well as priceless memories and experiences.
To turn my social and environmental passions into a career, I seek to start a master’s degree in Environment Management. Providing constant support and helping me develop my portfolio and networks as much as I can before starting this next chapter of my life is KickOff@3.
Initially joining the organisation as a youth volunteer, I am excited to now hold an Ambassador role. Pushing forward the philosophy and efforts of KickOff@3 as an article writer and fundraiser, I have also gained a huge body of connections and invaluable experiences thanks to the KickOff@3 team and its founders. Through KickOff@3’s connections and support I have secured myself two different internships in Journalism and PR respectively. This position has provided the platform I needed to explore my interests and develop the necessary skills to gain a master’s and future career in the environmental field.
I am a huge supporter of community work and youth engagement, and I couldn’t be prouder to be involved with an organisation like KickOff@3. As an ambassador I hope to inspire younger people to never give up and keep working towards their goals, and to take hold of the opportunities that are out there for them.
Through hard work, team effort and a lot of fun, we can achieve everything KickOff@3 believes in, and I am very excited to be a part of it all.
