I have just finished my third year Roehampton University studying Journalism combined with media and culture. However, I majored in Journalism in my third year. I have taken many courses throughout my three years, including News Writing, Feature Writing, Television Futures, Magazine Journalism and Introduction to Radio. These were both my favourite courses and the ones which I achieved the best feedback. I have a background in drama, eight years, which has really helped boost my confidence for presenting, interviewing, meeting new people and participating in conversation. I eventually would like to work in Television Production.

Surrey County Council - Dorking Library Refurbishment
Similarly to the previous example of my work, I wrote this during my SCC placement.
Surrey County Council - Business feature
During my placement at SCC, I wrote three features which were all published in their online E-Newsletter. I carried out interviews for all three features and wrote them independently.
This is a short feature I wrote as part of a magazine pitch. As a group we created a travel magazine for people aged 18-26. This included holidays, events and travelling holidays for people on a budget, most likely students. I wrote this independently as an example of the type of articles we would include in the magazine.
Exercise and Depression Feature
I wrote this article for a third year piece of work at University. The brief was that we had to write an article that fitted in with our chosen magazine. I chose 'Women's Health.'
