Personal statement

I am a third year Media and Communications BA(Hons) student at Birmingham City University, aspiring to achieve a career in the Public Relations and Communications Industry.

I chose to focus my studies in PR and Communication modules because of the fast-paced, creative and ever-changing industry that it is, along with the opportunity to work with some amazing clients. The course has enabled me to developed and number of skills and gain knowledge in Public Relation and Communication techniques. This includes skills in press release writing, creating campaign plans and proposals, conducting market research, budget awareness, creating social media plans, and promotional and marketing techniques.

Currently, I am working as a PR freelancer for the charity Springfield Mind, based in Stratford-Upon-Avon. I also work part time as a Marketing and PR assistant at MMX Communications services Ltd, developing their social media profile.
