I am a second year student at Leeds Beckett University studying Public Relations. I am originally from Manchester but have moved to Yorkshire to try these amazing puddings I’ve heard of; (I don’t regret my decision). In reality, as Leeds Beckett University was one of the top university’s for my chosen course it was only natural for me to go here and experience student life in Leeds. During Sixth Form, I did A-Levels in Business and Media and I thought PR was a good combination of all the things I enjoyed from both of those subjects.

My professional experience within the PR Industry would mainly be my placement at Prohibition PR and more recently my current placement at Link Communications. In my various placements, I have worked mainly on social media campaigns for clients, writing reports, presenting ideas to be used for certain projects and writing blog articles for official client websites.

Studying PR has highlighted that my strengths are; being analytical & critical, managing people & coordinating and being enthusiastic & committed. I have an ability to grow with a position, handle responsibility and build positive relationships with work colleagues at all levels. I am confident that I can bring a level of high performance to anything I put my mind to. I feel certain that my strong digital marketing skills coupled with my ability to stay on trend will be valuable to any company I join in the future.

My aim for the end of this month is to secure a PR placement at a global company so I can grow within the organisation and make valuable lifelong contacts that can help my networking position within the PR industry for the future.
