About me
I am a culturally engaged, optimistic and strategic thinker where I aspire to continue my career in the tech industry. I am currently working as Social Media Manager for Canva based in Sydney. I have experience across social media, project management, advertising as well as editorial. Outside of my current job, I am a body positive activist and writer. I was a commissioned writer for the popular UK journal, The Skinny where I wrote articles on fashion, arts and culture. I am interested in wellbeing where I am co-founder of I Am More Than, a project that promotes body positivity. I have written articles for The Huffington Post, The Daily Record, The Herald and have appeared on STV Glasgow and BBC Radio Scotland discussing body positivity. I’m available for opportunities within the social marketing space from production to curation to strategy. I am also an aspiring arts, culture and lifestyle writer so please do feel free to connect and let me know if you’d like to collaborate.
