WORK EXPERIENCE

USA Votes 2016

Bournemouth University ran online coverage in the month leading up to the US election in 2016, as well as  overnight coverage alongside radio and TV bulletins. I was the online editor, working with a large online and social media team, and converging with television and radio teams to create professional, coherent and original content. I thoroughly enjoyed the responsibility of the project, and the challenges it brought.

The Essex Chronicle

I spent two weeks at the local newspaper, where I put my news writing and interviewing skills to the test. I was able to attend editorial meetings, write several articles for online and print, working closely with the news and features team.

Your Election 15

As part of Bournemouth University’s General Election coverage, I worked as a reporter in the lead up to the uni’s overnight coverage on election night. I was able to interview MP’s, and worked as a sub editor on the main night. It was interesting to watch the election results unfold in what was a surprising night. I was able to enhance my news writing and politics knowledge during this project.

M Magazine

I spent a week at the PRS for Music’s in house magazine in 2012. I was able to write several articles for online, and is where I realised my true passion for journalism.
