About me
A passionate, ambitious and hardworking BA English, Television and Film graduate from Nottingham Trent University with a demonstrated history in PR and journalism, writing across print and digital platforms, as well as having interviewed many high-profile names. Experience in meeting deadlines, writing to various requirements about many different topics, and being extremely committed to research and content creation. I am a devoted culture and human rights enthusiast interested in marketing, public relations and the media. Whilst carrying out my studies, I have honed in on my research, writing and interviewing skills. My unwavering desire to work in the industry has led me to accomplish several work experience and internship placements and freelancing within editorial areas, continuing my passion for print and online publishing. I have featured on the likes of Vice, Dazed, Wonderland and Metro and contributed to a dissertation that won the Gender Research Group MA Dissertation Award. To further my industry knowledge, I have undertaken various Online Courses with HubSpot Academy, PR Academy Ltd and Google Garage, with each course offering a comprehensive introduction to a key subject. In a committed drive to succeed within the media industry, I have created a blog and portfolio to display my work and ensure my network and knowledge in a field continues to expand and develop. As I enter the professional working sphere, I hope to continue to showcase this knowledge through my work and eager to prosper in an in-house PR and marketing role. Below you will find links to my portfolio, which is an extension to my CV, there you will discover a host of different pieces of content I have produced for multiple media outlets.

  • Alyson Stoner Euphoria Magazine digital feature
    Alyson Stoner Euphoria Magazine digital featureThere’s something to be said about those that grew up in the public eye, who were forced to grow their wings without being fully prepared to do so themselves, because once they’re finally free of that- they don’t know where to go.
