I joined the University of Sheffield as an international PhD student. From the start of my studies at the School of Architecture, I was heavily engaged working as a General Teaching Assistant, and Administrative and Technical Support Officer simultaneously. The second role has introduced me to the world of finance and provided me with administrative knowledge in terms of how any academic department functions.

After finding a sanctuary in Yorkshire and completing my studies, I have continued wearing two hats, providing Administrative and Technical Support, and teaching Architecture in Sheffield and Leeds.
