|Dear Sir/ Madam
My name is Filomena Tereso.
Currently I am an ITEC level 3 diploma in complementary therapies (Massage, Aromatherapy and Reflexology) student at City Lit College.

I have gained a wealth of knowledge (and still learning) and skills about massage therapy. I am dedicated and passionate about what I do in my work as a therapist. The client’s needs are first and foremost in every session.. I am looking forward to working in a professional setting where I will be able to make use of the variety of skills I have acquired.
I would be honoured to have the opportunity for an interview. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions. Thank you for your time to review my application. I look forward to getting to know you better.
