I graduated with a BA Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies degree from Cardiff University in 2016. Since then I have been a bit unfocused and I have been working in admin jobs for the past three years. I have decided what I want job-wise and I want to get into copy writing and am looking to start building up my career. I display all the skills required like excellent communication, written and grammar skills which can be shown from my work experience, for example being a news writer and a digital blogger. I have experience from being a team-player from working with other members of staff at work and organising events outside work. I also have strong relationship building skills from knowing how to build personal relationships to work relationships in being personable and kind. In work relationships you can let people see the merit of your work and your reliability by replying to emails in a timely manner and getting work done to a high standard.Locked Pro Plan feature
I did work experience in the Sales & Marketing Department of the publishing house. I created mailing lists of universities of whom to send the company's books to. And I prepared the books for postage like taking off the sticky price tag of numerous books.
I was a digital blogger/ journalist at the National Eisteddfod of Wales 2013. The festival is one's of Europe's largest cultural festivals and I was happy to be a part of it. Myself, along with three other people from university, wrote a digital blog on WordPress about what was going on at the festival. We went out of our press office each day to go and find stories to write about and we used our phones to take pictures and to upload them to our blog. We also worked with Communities 2.0 which showed me how organisations work together to get stuff done.
I did work experience as an editor for Perfect Wedding Magazine at Immediate Media Co. in Bristol. I thoroughly enjoyed the work and did such things as image researching, engaged in meetings about how the magazine industry works and did freelance work, e.g. I came up with a wedding song playlist.
I was a producer for Xpress Radio- the university radio at Cardiff University. I organised the show for another student called Emma and she did a hip-hop 1 hour long radio show. I gathered the content for her shows through research to see what was happening in the hip-hop world.
I wrote news articles for a student-run news website for 3 years. It was great journalistic experience. I wrote some really varied and interesting articles.

Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies
I did various activities to get the The Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. The sport I did was jogging with my Dad once a week consistently for a few months. For charity work, I did Reading Buddies which was sitting with a child before school began for thirty minutes helping them to read. I also went on a one night camping and hiking trip in England.
