Bio

An aspiring media professional. I am currently a final year student at Birmingham City University, specializing in Journalism and Television. Half-way though my degree, I could say that I am proud to have encountered such exceptional professionals, who have influenced my choice of media development. I find a huge inspiration not only in the media workers I have met during my internships, but also in all of my lecturers and colleagues from BCU. A person should never miss an opportunity to evolve themselves as a producer and a human being. Therefore, I am aiming to participate in as many projects as possible in order to develop my skills, expand my knowledge and meet new people.
