A showcase of Leeds Beckett University's students in the School of Public Relations and Journalism
I am a Public Relations with Journalism student, studying at Leeds Beckett University. I am very passionate about the Public Relations and communications industry. With my educational experience focusing on subjects such as English and Psychology, I have always had a keen interest in writing and communicating with people. My interests also include film, the media and celebrities. I am very passionate about film and TV, always wanting to reach for a career in one of these areas. Over the last couple of years, I have grown a great interest for film and celebrity PR, which I enjoy writing about. Since last year, I have had a personal blog in which I have written about public relations, placements and films and I believe this to have furthered my skills in writing.
My experiences in journalism and public relations include a placement at an accounting company where I was in charge of writing the press releases and interviewing past winners of an annual competition held by the company. In addition to this, I have done a placement at a local newspaper Goole Times, where I wrote several articles which were published in the paper.
I have a lot of valuable skills that are transferable from both my personal interests and my university course, which can be applied to my professional career. Some of these skills include the ability to write press releases, conduct interviews, present pitches and write news stories and features. On a personal note, I believe myself to be a very trustworthy and motivated person.
I am very passionate about my future career as well as my current studies. As I have mentioned, I would love a career in film and television PR as I think I would strive in an industry that I am so enthused about and I have an avid interest for. In the near future, I aim to get as much experience as possible through placements and practice in order to further myself in my career path.
