About me
Graduate from the University of Glasgow, achieving a 2:1 in a Master of Arts with honours in Art History. Alongside my degree, I was heavily involved in the Glasgow University Charity Fashion Show. During my time with GUCFS, we raised over £82,000 for four incredible charities and grew substantially as a brand. As President of GUCFS 2019, I worked to push the creative and innovative boundaries of the society to further our philanthropic efforts for our charitable partner, Simon Community Scotland, facilitating a 53% increase in our charitable donation from the previous year; raising £34,130.79. I have recently completed Eventbrite’s Event Marketing & Sponsorship courses, and the 40-hour 'Fundamentals of Digital Marketing' certification by Google Digital Garage. I am also beginning to learn Adobe Creative Cloud apps, including Photoshop and InDesign!

FLVX19 was our largest, boldest and most immersive annual project and event to date, and we are very proud to have raised
