A twenty-three year old, coffee, communications, PR and advertising fanatic.

As a student at De Montfort University, Leicester, I developed a passion for effective ethical communications, managing positive professional relationships, and the ways in which reputation can be created, built and defended.

Despite my love of all things media, I quickly learnt that my passion is being able to assist in the development of these reputations, and working with businesses to get their brands and products the exposure they deserve.

I am currently undertaking an MSc in Advertising and PR Management as well as gaining additional work experience in my field.

Prior to my current studies, I have gained PR and Comms experience working with PAPER Arts, Weston-super-Mare Town Council, and KREOD International's 2016 Rio Olympics Trade Pavilion project, in addition to gaing B2B editorial experience with Communicate Magazine - a well known and much respected industry publication, and PR agency experience with Hopwood PR.

I'm currently looking to develop links with media, PR, and marketing professionals; gain a deeper exposure of the industry through further work experience opportunites; and ideally, develop a better understanding as to the sector for which my skills and interests best fit.

When not working, I love reading and following news and current affairs blogs; updating my own blogs and journalistic platforms; and facilitating my interest in international travel by teaching myself foreign languages - at present being German, Japanese and Mandarin.
