About me

I am a detail-oriented writer and an attentive researcher. I graduated from University of Greenwich in July 2016, with a BA (Hons) degree in Media and Communication. I have strong written and verbal communication skills. I am a self-motivated and independent individual who can set goals and work towards them. Hence, I work as a freelance journalist and copywriter at the moment. I worked for BBC Turkish over 9 months as a junior broadcast journalist. I have experience working in an art gallery, a film festival, radio, pr & social media start-up, documentary production and a student magazine.
