Studying business,within its different modules I was able to study many different aspects ofbusiness such as Selection and Recruitment, Managing an Event two of which Ihas found very interesting. There weremany other modules that I studied as part of business and hopefully I want tobe able to expand my knowledge at degree level to study International Businessand be able to learn about how it globally operates, within different regionand parts of the world. Through business I havelearnt many skills, I participated in a charity event as part of a unit westudied, and the unit was managing an Event. The charity event required me towork as part of a team, to plan and carry out the event, this alone helped mepick up many skills such as team working skills and leadership skills byproviding my ideas and support and working to create this event with my team tocollect as many donations as we could. During my freetime, I provide mentoring to secondary school students, I have also participatedin sports leaders and joined sports such as basketball and badminton incollege. Outside of college I have volunteered within charity work, which hasinvolved me collecting donation, I also volunteered at the Cancer Research andChildren’s Society charity shops, I feel like this has improved mycommunication skills and my time management skills as it required meinteracting with various people and managing my time with college work as wellas my other extra-curricular.
