Where are you from?

What was your undergraduate degree?
BA (Hons) Public Relations at RGU.

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
After graduating in 2019, I took a year out to work full time and to figure out what I wanted to do career wise. I have always had an interest in social media, and I thought this would be a route I would like to take but did not have enough experience in. I applied to the Digital Marketing MSc as I believed it would give me the practical skills and experience needed for industry.

What do you like best about the course so far?
Working with live clients to create digital marketing plans and strategies as it has provided an insight as to what it would be like to work in industry.

What’s your favourite app or website, and why?
My favourite app is Instagram. It allows me to keep up to date with friends and family, as well as brands and celebrities that I enjoy engaging with. I think it has been particularly important this past year during lockdown to engage with people I would otherwise see regularly.

Tell us a random fact about yourself!
I have a Pomeranian called Teddy, that looks like a teddy bear.
