About me
I am a creative, driven, and enthusiastic MA Journalism and Media Studies graduate who, after graduating, engaged in internships at both a local online publication and a PR company. With by-lines to my name, writing news articles and features online, I also have experience in social media management and marketing, and PR outreach. Now looking for the next opportunity where I can expand on these existing skills and gain new ones.

These helped to grow Instagram followers by around 200 in 30 days. - Oversaw the Crowdfunder launch party guestlist, where we had a positive turnout of 50 guests when we were expecting 30.
