About me
I'm an ambitious and hardworking young PR professional with experience in a range of industries - including Beauty, Lifestyle and Health Care. I believe in “learning by doing” and I’m passionate about exploring new things all the time, which is why I love working in environments that are engaging and challenging.Through my travels, professional and personal life, I have met and interacted with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds, an experience I have found thoroughly enriching. Although I enjoy my current job, I am ready for the next stage in my career development. Away from my professional career, I also have a podcast, called Sistah Lounge, which I host every Sunday and is available to listen to on iTunes and Soundcloud.

    PR & Social Media InternCrabtree & Evelyn
    London, United KingdomInternship
    A luxury lifestyle brand, renowned and respected for its original fragrances, fine foods and gorgeous gifts; all beautifully packaged to transform the ordinary rituals of daily life into extraordinary pleasurable experiences. I worked as a Brand Ambassador, at the flagship store on Regent Street, for a little over a year to support me while I completed my studies. It has been interesting experiencing the shop floor and the Head Office, as they are two very different job roles. While I have been doing my internship, I've had the pleasure of being assigned the following tasks: • Writing, assisting and sending out press releases • Putting together competitions • Copy writing and editing • Regularly liaise and update press/bloggers to build and maintain relationships • Use Hootsuite to manage social media platforms • Use Trendkite to monitor press coverage • Helping PR Manager complete tasks and responsibilities • Responding and managing editorial requests, press send outs and stock orders • Fill out Beauty Award entry forms • Day-to-day PR admin • To help create and put together social media campaigns/competitions • Helping to plan and attend in-store and press events • Keeping up to date with trends • Compiling monthly reports
