Trained in writing, tailoring stories for SEO purposes, sub-editing, conducting interviews and planning editorial for the magazine I edited. Successfully pitched a new magazine idea to a panel of experts. Dice Tower, the magazine I pitched, was voted the best out of the five ideas presented unanimously by the judges. I then led a team of 12 students to create the magazine during lockdown, which required excellent team working and communication. Learned to create new content, while also developing and maintaining contacts for stories.
