Where are you from?
I am from Portugal but have lived in Scotland for 7 years now! My mum is Portuguese and my dad is Scottish so it is the best of both worlds!

What was your undergraduate degree?
I completed a BA(Hons) in International Hospitality Management at RGU. I have been hospitality through and through since I was 15 and have been for 10 years since then. However, I decided to change career and deepen my knowledge on Digital Marketing.

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
In my previous job, I was Sales and Marketing Manager for a brand-new hotel in Aberdeen city centre. I loved my time there and was in charge of all sales and marketing. However, I realised my true passion lay with Digital Marketing once those tasks were passed onto a Marketing role for the whole hotel group in the UK so that, we as Sales Managers, could focus on selling. A blessing in disguise really as that is how I decided to pursue this Masters!

What do you like best about the course so far?
I love the versatility and creativeness of it! Exploring a world where anything is possible and constantly changing is exciting to me. I constantly read up on trends within the industry and never get tired of it! Especially now the Digital era is booming more than ever, and being a part of that is a real thrill.

What’s your favourite app or website, and why?
My favourite website is Wilbur and Wolf. They are literally my favourite when it comes to photography props and their website is just a delight to navigate and so aesthetically pleasing!
