Interests

Leadership. I was the president of my class three years in a row where I developed planning and organisational skills.

Travelling. Travelling through Europe has taught me how to adapt to unexpected situations and improvise new plans. It helped me to develop my budgeting and planning skills as I financed, organized and planned all of my trips. I also cultivated communication skills through contact with people across the world and learned to use non verbal and verbal communication to overcome language barriers. Due to these experiences I became more independent and self-confident.

Dear Mariella,

Overall, an excellent CV for a non-native speaker. Bravo.

Under work experience, I used the word 'through' because I assumed you worked until September 30th. If not, change 'through' to 'to'.

Interests

Leadership. I was the president of my class three years in a row. This enabled me to begin developing my planning and organisational skills.

Travelling. Travelling through Europe has taught me how to appropriately react and adapt to unexpected situations and improvise new plans rapidly. It helped me to develop budgeting and planning skills as I financed, organized and planned each of my trips. I also cultivated communication skills through contact with people throughout the world and learned to use non verbal and verbal communication to overcome language barriers. Thanks in great part to these experiences, I became more independent and self-confident.
