Personal statement

Im Sky McCracken, a 21 year old Media and Communications student currently completing my last year at Birmingham City University. 

As of now, you will find me working on my dissertation which is focused on social media- in particular Instagram, and the affects their decision to remove visible 'likes' has had on its general users and rising influencers. I chose to write about this particular subject as it is very new and unique, and with it being such a new issue, no other student would have ever written about it before. 

​My interest for media came from an early age, growing up in Drama school i grew an interest for being behind the scenes production which took me on my path to experience within television production. After exploring that sector, i decided to explore a wider range of the media industry which led me to Grayling PR.

​After exploring a wide range of options within the media industry i have found myself with an ambition to build a career within the PR industry, which is my goal after graduation.
