About me
I'm an International Media & Communications student who is passionate about storytelling in multiple artistic forms. Whether through photography, art, music or writing, I'm keen to collaborate with artists, gain insight from those in the industry and learn from my peers. My work is generally related to culture and identity, with a strong focus on portrait photography and the exploration of the African diaspora.

    Business, Operations & Marketing internBright Network
     - Bedford, United KingdomInternship
    As a part of the IEUK experience, Bright Network organised a number of online internship schemes. In order to gain better insight into the world of business and marketing, I enrolled onto the Business, Marketing & Operations scheme. It was an amazing opportunity which enabled me to learn directly from successful brands such as Google, P&G and Enterprise, as well as networking with my peers through 1:1 sessions and partaking in the marketing work sample task. It was also very inspiring that so many people were able to take part in the learning experience in the midst of COVID-19.

    BA (Hons) International Media and CommunicationsUniversity of Nottingham
    Nottingham, United Kingdom
    Paired with modules in French, the course covers culture; traditional, digital and transnational forms of media; society; technology and the varied interpretations of communication. By looking both nationally and internationally and comparing past eras to our current way of living, studying international media and communications has equipped me with a broad and unique understanding of the human experience, specifically what we should be focusing on in order to progress.
