This is a little taster of my experience as a journalist so far.
To read more about what I’ve done and/or if you’re interested in contacting me for work, this is my CV:
I am currently the Editor-in-Chief for Nottingham Trent Student Union’s official magazine Platform. I have been responsible for promoting the brand, recreating the website, bringing it back into print and encouraging people to join. For my hard work, I have been awarded the Outstanding Commitment award at the Student Publication Awards 2018 and was awarded Committee Member of the Year at the NTSU awards in 2019. More recently, I was Highly Commended in the Features category at the Midlands Media Student Awards, and also had a feature shortlisted in the SPA Best Human Rights Story category in 2019.

I regularly write music reviews for them, and covered Bloodstock for them last summer.

I worked here for about 9 months when I was sixteen, and was my first real taste of the magazine world. I was really lucky to be picked to be part of the 16-person team, after they whittled down the original bunch of 50-odd!

I have photographed at two events in recent months, and both clients were pleased with their photos. I submitted the craft club photos alongside a news story as part of my university portfolio, and I received a first for them. These are a few pictures from each.
