Personal statement

I am BA (Hons) Media and Communications student, specialising in Events and Exhibitions at Birmingham City University. I am due to graduate in 2020 and I am actively looking for a job in the events industry.

During my studies at university I have managed and produced three events which has allowed me to develop my personal and professional skills. The events I’ve produced include:
- Santa4Homeless Charity Events: raising money for the homeless people of Birmingham (Group work)
- A PR Exhibition for a start-up business, the Window Artists (Group work)
- An Exhibition showcasing LGBTQ+ Art by LGBTQ+ Artists (Individual)

Alongside my studies, I worked as a Fundraising Events Manager for Pride in London where I took training to develop my events skills, as well as broadening my professional network. The duties I undertook during this role was; organising and hosting events that suited the demographic, coordinating volunteers, coordinating materials for events, building relationships with establishments, cash handling and banking, specifying budgets and goals, and many other responsibilities.

The extensive knowledge that I’ve acquired has enabled me to adapt and experiment with other areas such as; PR, music industries, graphics and photography – where I have refined my Adobe artistry.
