I graduated from the University of Leicester in 2014 with a First Class Honours degree in BA History and Politics. Despite by background in the humanities and social sciences, I kept up my keen interest in classical music, even writing my dissertation on it. I am currently an intern at classical music Public Relations agency WildKat PR. I am looking to stay within the industry and I look forward to connecting with you.
