I spent my third year abroad in Paris, where I studied and then completed an internship at an international, luxury fashion recruitment agency. After graduation when asked to return to the recruitment agency, I duly jumped at the opportunity. I now live in Paris and am proud to say I speak fluent French (a real plus in the fashion industry).
