Farhana Khatun

Office Assistant

As an Office Assistant, I am one of the first of many smiles to greet everyone who walks through the doors of Foolproof’s London office. My role here is incredibly versatile and diverse; I aid in the smooth and efficient running of the reception desk, as well as striving to maintain the high standards that Foolproof prides itself on.

I arrived at Foolproof with 4 + years of customer service experience, and a degree in Creative Writing and TV & New Broadcast Production. I have an affinity for all things creative and believe that allowing oneself to indulge in all types of crafts is one path to personal excellence for “I would rather be a Jack of all trades than a Master of one”.

Alongside my customer facing roles, I have worked as a Social Media Engager/Art Worker/Front of House for a small independent coffee house in Islington, an Events Photographer and Journalist for DESIblitz.com - an online magazine – and nurtured my Front of House abilities at Waterhouse Restaurant, a unique dining experience set up by the Shoreditch Trust.

Being part of the Foolproof team has opened opportunities for me to learn, develop and gain the stability to excel in the long term.

I have published poems with Forward Poetry and like to paint abstract pieces of art utilising all and any types of materials at my disposal.

Alongside these creative outlets, one of my main passions is finding time to make a nest of duvet’s and fluffy blankets from which I binge watch all my favourite TV shows – Japanese Animations in particular - and movies whilst consuming a seemingly endless supply of Werther’s Original (a piece of solidified nectar that has existed for more than a century!) alongside the occasional Kinder Bueno.

If there is anything I can take from being at Foolproof, it is this; the path to success is an arduous one but no matter how thin a moment stretches you, it will give you room to overcome and transform.
