I am currently in my fourth and final year studying BA (Hons) Public Relations at the University of Gloucestershire and am looking to pursue a career in Consumer PR.

As part of my degree I spent a year working in the industry at a consumer PR agency which specialises in food, drink, restaurant and tourism PR. During this time I worked on two campaigns which won gold and silver at the CIPR West of England PRide Awards, as well as a variety of client accounts.

From immersing myself within the PR industry and caryuing out a degree in PR, I have gained a lot of experience and have acquired many skills that will enrich my future career.

These include:

Strong communication expertise both written and verbal

Media relations (including pitching)

Social media (training and managing)

Interviewing

Online content creation

Collecting media coverage

Carrying out targeted research

Campaign evaluation

Email marketing

Art directing photo-shoots

Media monitoring

SEO

Originally from Cornwall, I am looking to move to London and experience working and living in the capital.

I also have an interest in the fashion industry and enjoy reading blogs such as La Petite Anglaise. As well as this, I enjoy keeping up with current affairs, but have a weakness for celebrity gossip, rom-coms, reality TV, American teen dramas (Gossip Girl).

I will also sing very loudly if I think no one is listening!
