About Weronika and job interest

I am a student of British Academy of Interior Design. I will graduate in winter 2021 with a post-graduate diploma in Interior Design. During my school years, I was passionate about a theatre and an opera and I have finished 3 years of classical singing course in the Music School. I have moved to Edinburgh in the age of 19, looking for an adventure, as well as to develop my artistic skills within theatre and music, therefore I have entered the Performing Arts course at Edinburgh College. In the meantime I had an opportunity to work in a Michelin starred restaurant in Edinburgh, where I gained a customer service experience, as well as learnt how to be efficient, organised and precise. My passion for design came in later years when I had an opportunity to travel and time to pursue my interest in the history of architecture and design. Organizing a space became intuitive and started giving me joy and satisfaction. I have discovered how much I admire form, shape, light and shadow, colours, details and aesthetic. Transforming spaces became a sort of expression of art, which was always present in my life. I had a chance to work closely with experienced architects, which gave me the courage to transform my ideas into concepts and motivation for further development.

Why Should We Hire You?

I am an undergraduate student of Interior Design Academy. During my design course, I had an opportunity to gain relevant knowledge and skills, develop my creative thinking and learn computer skills. I believe the world of design demands constant learning, searching and exploring as much as understanding clients and their needs. I am a diligent and ambitious person who pays attention to the details and always put an effort in every task. I am just at the beginning of my journey with the Interior Design, therefore I am looking forward to starting work with a professional company to gain more knowledge, experience and to prove myself.
