      Awards

      2018

      • I have worked in Smoke TV from January till August as Head of Entertainment, being responsible for overseeing the organization and production of all original, non-factual programming. What is more, I have helped many members produce short films and events coverage, while using initiative to produce original content (which also helped me learn how to use Adobe Premiere) with the goal of entertaining students. Moreover, I have covered several namely music/arts related events on campus, and that was one of the reasons I had the honor of winning the Presenter of the Year Award in the Westminster University’s Student Union Awards. Furthermore, I covered the SU Elections, where I got the opportunity of meeting and building strong relationships with many elected leaders in many of the University’s communities. Plus, I represented the station in the NaSTA (National Student Television Awards). My key motive is to promote and publicize Smoke Media on campus as well as keeping all members up to date of what is happening in them. I learnt to manage my own time, prioritize and organize tasks efficiently, to work alone and under pressure with an excellent eye for detail and to brainstorm, pitch and develop creative ideas regularly.
