I'm Lydia, an Edinburgh based copywriter. I'm currently finishing up my Creative Advertising MSc at Edinburgh Napier University. My favourite projects to work on are social good campaigns but to be honest, I love to get stuck into anything. Obviously, navigating a global pandemic while trying to get work experience and graduate was not how I saw this summer going but here we are!
