    20 twenty-somethings around the worldTHE FACE: Between the pandemic and the protests, this year has been an alarm bell for young people.

I took it upon myself to reignite the story and build relationships with record labels and music PR agencies, liaise with chosen venues to secure complimentary meals, interview the artist, and write the piece.

Not only did this lead to a well-received piece of content, it helped raise brand awareness as artists shared the article on their socials.
