Through school and university I have built up the
ability to communicate with my peers in such a way
as to complete the task to a high standard.

Confident personality
I have the confidence to happily approach people and communicate with them in order to get the best out
of the situation.

Excellent software skills
I am competent in all Microsoft office titles and I have a brilliant understanding of Adobe InDesign, Audition and Premier Pro.

I am a BBC Radio 5 Live regular; I complete the newspaper review section of the show alongside host Dotun Adebayo. This opportunity has allowed me to gain strong communication skills invaluable broadcast experience. I have the ability share my viewpoint with members of my team quickly and efficiently in order to get to the heart of important current news stories. I completed a placement at PitchTALKS, a podcast brand which speaks to media Software and skills industry experts about their route into their line of work.
