Media & Communication

Personal statement

I am a BA Hons, Media and Communications student at Birmingham City University due to graduate in July 2019.

I am a creative, open-minded individual who possesses a keen interest in all aspects of the media, however, my passions lie within Public Relations, Events, and Celebrity Culture. Throughout my course I have studied modules such as Public Relations Techniques, Affect and Emotion Within the Media, Events Management and Communications Management.

After securing a job that includes being a Brand Developer, Social Media Agent, and an Influencer Manager, I believe I have proven ability to commit the passion and knowledge I have gained during my time at university and studying those chosen modules, to present these skills to an employer.
I have been able to develop my practical skills such as using a DSLR Camera, Adobe Photoshop, and Industry Standard Equipment in Television. Additionally, I have advanced other skills, including organisation, confidence within networking, time management, and teamwork.

For my final project, I am working closely with a school over in Mombassa, Kenya. This has been an exciting project for me to work on, and this can be viewed via the following website like in addition to other pieces of work completed during my time on the Media and Communications course.
