About me

I am initially trained as teacher, however I quickly fell out of love with this career path during my training, but continued with my degree, determined to progress to a Masters level degree in English - which I am now currently studying towards. English is an ongoing passion since GCSE - I've always been creative in both art and writing; I'm taking creative writing module in particular and I've kept art as a hobby since A levels. While continuing this, I had the intention of looking for a new career path along the way. Copywriting seemed ideal, being heavily creative and English Language based, and in a way links with my previous teacher training, for instance: you have to keep your lesson content creative as a teacher otherwise you'll lose your target audience, i.e. your whole classroom. However, although I enjoyed this aspect of teaching, I wanted to put more focus on my own creative side and use it more corporately, due to loving an internship I completed over the summer.

My Internship was based in Canary Wharf and the role was heavily based around my writing skills and I loved the business world and the fast-paced lifestyle it had to offer. I'm often on the go and I travel a lot to meet with friends and family. From this experience I realized I was attracted to to the idea of promoting products, services and brands. I found when working in London that I received satisfaction when seeing the effects of a successful project, which then motivated me more and further put me off the teaching career path. Within the corporate sector I enjoyed helping to raise the profile of a business, through targeted bids and strategies, and is something I'd be thoroughly inspired by and will enjoy in the future.

I'd like to be part of a collaborative team which finds new ways to reach target audiences. I enjoy a challenging environment and the aspects of discussing intuitive promotional ideas and making sure campaigns run smoothly. It seems highly rewarding, especially when a campaign is a success which is the kind of creative and motivating career that I'm striving for.

I am passionate about design and keen to start my career in the editorial sector. Most of all, I have fantastic attention to detail regarding grammar and spelling skills, I consistently show a positive attitude towards work and I'm always looking to progress through learning new skills.
