My name is Shauna Alexa Wright and I am a recent Fashion Business and Promotion Gradute from Birmingham City University.
Welcome to my online portfolio showcasing work produced over the last few years. I am actively seeking a role predominantly within event management or the event industry.
Aside from university I run a small beauty business namely 'Sleek and Shaped' specialising in Individual eyelash extensions and Eyebrow treatments. I also currently work for Premium accessories brand Kurt Geiger known for their very vibrant shoes and bags. Studying , running a business and working part-time has been a challenge however I appreciate the balance it offers - doing something different everyday!
My future career aspiration is to be in a fast paced role which involves fun, creativity and balance. During my second year of uni I completed the Events Management module with 4 other peers, collectively we organised a mothers day event to raise money for the charity 'St. Basils'. The plan was to host an event screening the film 'Pretty Woman' on the 30th anniversary which was near to mothers day, making it the perfect gift for all mothers out there.We successfully sold a huge majority of tickets but sadly the event was cancelled due unforeseen circumstances. For this module I was assigned as the venue manager, my responsibility was to source a suitable venue, beverages and entertainment. I thoroughly enjoyed my role as it gave me huge responsibility and tasks to undergo all whilst being fun and creative.
During my time at university I have been able to develop my interpersonal skills as well as my creative skills, I have learnt to adapt and implement new ways of thinking and going above and beyond.
University has taught me to become resilient as there have been many highs and many lows. I hope to be in my dream job as a Fashion/Beauty/Lifestyle event planner within 1-2 years after graduating.
