How would you describe yourself in three words
Bubbly, energetic, geeky.
What do you most enjoy about working in PR
The diversity of the job, no one can ever say PR is a boring industry to be in, each day is different to the next.
What is your favourite book
Reading has to be one of my favourite pass times, once I become enthralled in a book I struggle to put it down. I absolutely love everything Harry Potter written by J. K. Rowling. I have read all seven books and I would say my favourite is the final one of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; it had me gripped from the first to last page.
What did you want to be when you grew up
I changed my mind more times than I can remember but always knew I wanted to do something media based. I wanted to be the editor of my own paper one week and a film director the next.
What do you find most challenging about working in PR
This is my first role in PR and so far I wouldn’t say it is the most challenging but the most overwhelming thing I have come across is getting my head around what needs doing and when. Having to prioritise your workload can be difficult at times but, seeing the final result of your hard work is a very rewarding feeling.
If you could be anything else, what would it be (career wise)
A paramedic or fire-fighter, I love the idea of having the skills and ability to save someone’s life. It is probably something I would have looked at doing if it wasn’t for my fear of confined spaces, I would never be able to climb my way down a well or lift shaft to rescue someone, and if I did it would probably end up with me needing to be rescued too!
If you had a super power what would it be
This is a difficult one. Maybe the ability to morph into other people and take on their talents, superheroes included, that way you would inherit their powers while I’m in their form and have a different power each time. Greedy, but awesome, you could be Hulk one day and Spiderman the next.
What is your guilty secret (food / TV programmes)
I wouldn’t call it a secret as such but I am a massive Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Super Hero fan. I love all things Marvel, DC, Star Wars and Harry Potter. I love watching films that you know will never happen in real life but have that ability to make you believe in the magic whilst watching them. I must have watched Stardust, all the Potter films and Avengers twenty times over; something I can say annoys my boyfriend at times, especially when I know every word the characters are going to say.
What are you most proud of
Achieving my Journalism degree and gaining a job with Open Communications through it. A few people doubted my ability to find a job that I not only wanted to do but was also relevant to my degree. I have always been determined to prove them wrong and can definitely say now I have done just that.
Which account would you most like to work on if you could choose
I would love to be involved in a book launch or film release. My two favourite hobbies are reading and watching films so something like organising a press campaign for an exciting new book would tick all the boxes for me.
