ROAST MY RESUME - REVIEW/ADVICE

Recently ''finished'' my CV/Resume that I'll be using in order to apply for spring week/insight programmes mainly within IB - I'm fully aware that it probably needs a lot more work and tweaks down the road. Would really appreciate some advice and feedback, roast my resume!

Just after a quick read - 

Don't say responsible for instead use action verbs that show u did it. 
 

the last bullet point on the first experience seems great, maybe include that closer to the top? 
 

you said one of the largest newspapers, maybe show how (I.e. say # of readers, people who work on it or whatever makes it one of the largest). 
 

I like how you centered your bullets to be results oriented, my advice is to try to get my numbers in there too. Sometimes it's hard to come up with numbers for things but really try even if you think you're being over explanatory. 
 

i don't like the expected gpa and coursework, would just not mention gpa for undergrad and instead show the classes you have enrolled for this fall. I gues idk how they do it in Sweden tho.

Seems reasonable, thanks. The first couple of classes I mentioned are the ones for fall, the others will be coming up during spring - so guess I'll delete those? Will also try to add more numbers, I agree with that point

Predicted GPA 3.9?? Might as well make up work experience while you're at it

Enim enim rerum vel ut minus. Veniam molestiae sit perspiciatis aperiam voluptatibus officiis qui. Nihil nemo reiciendis non dolorum sapiente. Tempora similique pariatur doloribus officiis.

Sed ut ut quia voluptatem quae ea. Temporibus voluptas nam cum quia nulla aut.
