Media & Communication


Personal statement

Hi, I'm Fiona. I'm currently in my third and final year at BCU doing a BA Media Communications degree.
I'm on the broad course because my interests are varied and it's hard for me to pick just one section to focus all my attention to.

Currently, I'm completing my dissertation on how Alyssa Milano's tweet has impacted the MeToo movement after making the phrase go viral with 4.7 million uses in the first 24 hours. This dissertation also branches into the impact of the celebrity in social activism, and I absolutely love learning and writing about such an important event in the fight for equality.

I have worked in the marketing department and the photography studios for Sainsbury's and Argos and gained valuable experience and LinkedIn connections. Some of them now work for the likes of Google, BBC, and Sky.

Please take some time to look at my online profiles and website that I have created throughout my time at BCU, linked on your right.
