I am a recent Public Relations graduate with a 2nd Honours degree from the University of Arts in London. I am grateful to have had wonderful opportunities to undertake internships at a variety of companies over the years - both in-house and agency. I've been lucky enough to secure a 6-month internship in the Public Relations department, immediately after graduating, at a well-known brand - Crabtree & Evelyn Ltd. I am a self-motivated, keen leaner with great ambitions of being one of the best in this industry one day. I am a confident speaker, comfortable with interacting with people at all levels. These past 6 months especially, I have had an in-depth insight of the industry and the daily life of a PR professional. I fully recognise the hard work that comes with becoming a success in the industry and I know I am ready to really begin my career as a full-time professional. Through my degree, personal research and the internships I have done, I now feel that I have the relevant tools to continue on to the next chapter of my career, as a Junior PR Executive.
