Personal statement

Hello! I am currently a media and communication student in my final year, specialising in music industries with an interest in music journalism. I have experience in music PR campaigns and music video shoots .

My passion for music journalism sparked from an interview on radio one between Zane Lowe and Chris Martin. It was the first time I had seen an interview with a musician that I was genuinely captivated by and it inspired me to head towards a career in the media industry. I found out through my music journalism module I had a passion for creating stories and interviewing interesting people. I have found that I love interviewing musicians, finding out their creative process, how they find inspiration and finding out what lead them to where they are now really fascinates me.
As part of my final year project I created an online music magazine, Beats Root. A magazine celebrating great music, interviewing wonderful people and allowing a place to discuss all things music.
