Personal statement

Welcome to my online portfolio. Here you will find my video portfolio, links to my social media and my CV.

Over my three years at university, I have developed an advanced skillset across multiple media departments as well as a strong passion for journalism. I have used my graphic design skills to design and build a full stage set for a live TV show, redesigned and rebranded several companies and written a variety of journalistic content for numerous outlets.

My most notable success throughout my three years at university was gaining the confidence to pitch my news stories to professional publications. As a result of this, I have had several news stories published in the Birmingham Live, The Phoenix Newspaper and the Aston Villa Ladies Football Club newsletter, as shown in the video above.

I have gained valuable work experience at digital marketing agency, Milton Bayer, where I learnt to apply my media skills and knowledge in a professional work environment. I learnt how to effectively organize work, deal with clients and produce quality content for a variety of websites.

For my final year project, I have created a magazine called Creative Spark about creatives, for creatives. The annual magazine’s primary purpose is to inspire and provide a fresh outlook and to help with creative block. This project showcases several of my media abilities such as, graphic design, photography and journalism as well as helping me to further develop my professional organization and financial management skills. If you would like to receive a digital copy of my magazine after the release date (May 18th 2019), please contact me via email. Print copies are also available to purchase.

I love to dance and I’m part of the dance society committee where I run the social media pages and help with the overall running of the society. We have been incredibly successful, placing 2nd in both competitions we have completed this academic year.

I’m an aspiring journalist and in the future, I endeavour to continue to develop my skills, learn and experience new aspects of the media industry as well as continue to develop my magazine.
