I am a multimedia journalist for Trinity Mirror and I am currently awaiting the results of my NQJ qualification to become a senior journalist. In 2015 I completed my NCTJ Diploma with the Press Association in London and received the gold standard.
I have undertaken work placements with the Guardian, the Times, the Independent, the Huffington Post UK, the Coventry Telegraph, the Kentish Express and the Kent on Sunday, and have also written for the Telegraph and the Metro.
I gained a good degree in English Literature at the University of Warwick. During my time there I threw myself into student media, becoming deputy editor of my student newspaper as well as taking on a number of other roles. In 2015 I won one of three awards for outstanding contribution to the Students' Union.
I am currently the chief blog editor at Career Camel, having set up and managed the blog almost entirely alone, and I was previously in the role of marketing officer for the Student Publication Association, the biggest support group for student journalists in the UK.
