1. Why was PR your chosen career?

I was first introduced to PR when studying a BTECH in Creative Digital Media at college. This sparked my interest because it enabled me to infuse my writing skills with a big dash of creativity. After choosing this subject for my undergrad degree too, I knew that this would be my ideal career choice. (Also, Eddy from Ab Fab always seemed to have great fun in her PR role!)

2. If you hadn’t chosen a career in PR what would you be doing?

Probably something outdoor related. I think I would be a professional rock climber or boulderer and take part in competitions to earn a living wage – however, I don’t think this would have ever happened. Realistically, I think I would be a dog walker or a vet as I am very animal orientated.

3. What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

“Stop over worrying!” A good piece of advice that I really should listen to.

4. If you won the lottery, how would you spend it?

After giving my family and friends a good ‘chunk’ of the money, I would use the rest to tick off the items on my bucket list. This would include the Day of the Dead in Mexico, a bungee jump, learning another language and running the London Marathon.

5. What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

Waitressing for a small coffee shop. I decided to wash the mugs in butter (by accident), which obviously meant there were many unhappy customers returning their oily coffees. Even now, I still can’t make a good cup of tea or coffee!

6. If you were an animal what would you be and why?

It sounds conventional, but I would be my dog. She is spoilt rotten and gets to nap for most of the day. Also, if I was a tropical animal or anything different, I would probably be unlucky enough to be trapped in a zoo or be eaten by predators.

7. If you could, would you live forever and why/why not?

In principle, this sounds amazing! I could do everything I wanted in life and more. In a thousand years’ time I would be the cleverest human alive. However, all my family and friends would not have the same ability and I can imagine the world would be a lonely place.

8. Who are your top three dream dinner party guests?

Stevie Nicks, Alan Sugar and Miley Cyrus.

What role should social media play in this election?

Over six million people tuned in to watch Corbyn and Johnson go head to head in the first debate of the upcoming general election. But it wasn’t just what the two political parties were doing on camera that got the public’s attention. The Tories came under fire for renaming one of its Twitter accounts a […]

Why SMEs should be surfing the podcast wave

Over the past few years, the popularity of the podcast has grown tremendously. Apple alone reported an increase of over 200,000 podcasts since June last year; and now […]
