About me

I am a recent Communications Master's graduate with two past internships in fashion PR – luxury in-house and agency – as well as freelance writing experience for fashion and music magazines. Whilst studying for my two degrees, I had to balance my schedule in school with training with the track team on a scholarship, which required me to be extremely organized, driven, and efficient with my time. My strongest skill is writing, and I am highly experienced in Fashion GPS as well as all Microsoft Office programs and social media platforms. I am currently seeking full-time employment in London.
