Vicky Louise Squires

Media & Communication

Personal statement

Hi, my name's Vicky. I'm a Media and Communications student studying at Birmingham City University. I'm predominantly a radio specialist, however my skillset expands far beyond this.

I am currently writing my dissertation on how the reality television programme's 'Geordie Shore' and 'Love Island' could be said to influence the behaviour of their young audiences. I decided to write about this as I am an avid viewer of both shows and have seen first hand how it has affected younger audiences by thinking that they need to look a certain way to be 'socially pretty'. There are also other issues like the normalising of smoking and violence which I am exploring also.

For my production project I am working in a team to create a radio station that caters for the student scene in Birmingham. We are creating content that is suitable for all universities across Birmingham to create the sense of one big family.
