    I am currently on summer holiday awaiting to go back to sixth year at secondary, and I’ve been looking for a way to become involved in businesses and projects involving advertising for the past year as it is in the field of what I’d like to further study. Ballet is also something that interests me, despite having never had a chance to practice it, and should I be granted this opportunity, I will do my best to assist as fully as possible.

    Thank you.
