About me
Having just finished my English (BA Hons) degree, I am interested in working in media and publishing. I have a vast amount of experience as a staff writer, editor and social media manager. This experience along with my upbeat attitude and passion for journalism would make me a great addition to any creative team.
Projects
  • QMUL Global Bloggers
    QMUL Global BloggersDuring my second year of university, I became a blogger for QM Global. Detailing my experiences as an English Literature student in New York and London, I wrote about student life, living away from home and mental health. Not only did I write and take photographs for the blog on a monthly basis but also created content for QM's social media accounts.
  • The Simple Press
    The Simple PressIn August 2018, I launched The Simple Press with Roberta Kirosingh. Our female-led independent news outlet is devoted to giving those who are often ignored in the media a voice. As head of the Arts and Entertainment department and Deputy Chief Editor, I manage a team of ten writers- scheduling and editing their content as well as writing my own.
