About me

 

I am a tenacious, lively and personable young woman looking to take the next step in my career. I can turn my hand to any form of journalism, be in short news stories or detailed feature length articles. I am a confident individual and feel comfortable interviewing even the most senior members of high profile companies, building a trustworthy network with the help of my outgoing nature. I am constantly striving to be better than what I have already achieved, be it by generating more views than ever on a new blog post or the sub editor at my current job having little to comment on. I have always been a hard working and ambitious person and I am now looking to take the next step in my journalism career. Thank you for taking the time to consider my profile, I hope to hear from you soon.

I also write news stories and features for PME every month, ranging from 300 to 2000 words. I have additionally been chosen and trusted to attend conferences both in the UK and abroad, including visiting the headquarters of one of the world’s leading medical companies to interview members of its board. I was first selected to attend a conference abroad after just three months in the role.

  • I post three times a week on my eponymous beauty and lifestyle blog, with content ranging from reviews, tutorials, comical lists and recipes. Being in control of my own platform has enabled me to learn the importance of digital presence by utilising social media and SEO to generate traffic, equating to thousands of views. Building a network and immersing myself in the blogging community has aided me in creating reliable contacts and relationships, leading me to work with brands including Benefit Cosmetics and La Roche Posay. My photography knowledge and skills have also evolved as all images used on my website have been taken by myself. I am currently planning to launch a YouTube channel to expand my online presence alongside my blog.
