Media & Communication


Personal statement

Hi, I'm Tia. A soon to be 1st class honors degree graduate from the School of Media at Birmingham City University. I am a communications professional with experience of working within an agency and as freelance creating public relations and digital/social media solutions. This includes creating content for social media and blogs, media relations and influencer marketing campaigns. As my time at university comes to end, I am seeking new opportunities to continue my learning experience whilst building a career.

More recently, I have founded my own communications agency (I Communications) as part of my final year university project which looks at social impact and cause-related marketing strategies. For this, I have conducted research into TOMS Shoes as a case study for communicating social responsibility and used the outcomes to create and implement campaign plans and strategies for two start-up companies whom I work part time for as a PR, digital and marketing intern.

Outside of study, I am a keen runner and have ran the Leicester Half Marathon in 2018 and the Birmingham Half Marathon in 2019. I am also undertaking an English teaching course so that I can teach English to non-english speakers. To me, the ability to communicate with other people is extremely important and as campaigns go global i think its even more important now to be able to get the right language to speak to a wider range of audiences.
