“Working for the CCI Faculty has been an incredible opportunity for me to work on a diverse range of projects and events across Portsmouth, including: Art Exhibitions, Inaugural Lectures, and festivals, which I may not have even known about if it weren’t for this role!
This year has been a unique chance for me to utilise and develop my skill set, and learn about my strengths and weaknesses, which will prove invaluable when it comes to job hunting after graduation.
I have met so many different people throughout my time in this role, who have all been so kind, supportive, and have contributed to making this year truly incredible, which will make it all the more difficult to leave.”
