Creative
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

The ability to work as part of a team and communicate well with others is one of the skills I utilise most in the working environment. I honed these skills over my years in school playing sports for multiple clubs and participating in many school societies. I was also elected head girl in my final year of secondary school. This greatly improved my team management skills as I was the team leader for our team of prefects and also represented the school at many events.
