    During the course of my degree, I studied film theory, history, and research and developed skills inclusive of film production, screenwriting, film editing. I was also a committee member of UKC's Film Society from 2018-2019, and my duties involved organising meeting spaces, selecting bi-weekly films for viewing, and engaging in post-screening discussions with my fellow students and society members.
