About me

 

As well as being a highly organised individual with good time skills, a very strong work ethic and ability to adapt and think on my feet; I am also extremely creative and innovative with a strong visual eye and a knack for story telling. During my degree I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of writing creatively and critically about a very eclectic range of material such as Avant Garde film, 21st century literature and 18th century photography. I write short stories in my own time and attended weekly 'Quick Fictions' events at university where I was provided with a platform to share my work and to engage in the work of other people. After leaving university I have focused on uniting my writing skills with my love of fashion and have completed a short course on Fashion Journalism at Central Saint Martins. Proficient in word, power point, and excel.
