Last year I graduated from the University of Leeds with a First Class BA (Hons) in International Development. During my studies, I set up my own freelance creative media service as a way to channel my enthusiasm for photography and videography into a productive creative space outside of my degree. Although I enjoyed my studies, my passion for creative media and lifestyle, combined with a curiosity in creative engagement and experiences, has consequently driven me to pursue a career that operates within the arts and lifestyle industries.
