Studying History at Oxford has encouraged my interest in people, emotions and the art of communication. Outside of my degree, I have edited the Fashion Section of Oxford University's independent newspaper, The Cherwell. In this capacity I was responsible for writing, commissioning and editing articles for the weekly paper as well as its website which attracts 50, 000 page views each week. I also was tasked with formulating concepts for photo shoots, sourcing models and photographers, and directing the shoots. I enhanced Cherwell Fashion’s social media presence through Instagram and sourced interviewees through this medium. Another passion of mine is boxing. In order to promote the University's Boxing Club I devised coverage of the annual Town vs Gown match and then presented the broadcast for Cherwell TV. This involved interviewing boxers and coaches as well as initiating a crowd Voxpop. I was also selected to write a cover feature endorsing the Club for the University's Sports Annual Review. From the library to the catwalk to the boxing ring, I have learnt a diverse range of skills which would translate well to advertising. I thrive under pressure in a deadline driven environment and I relish the opportunity to engage with my varying target audience. I would love to the opportunity to apply and hone these skills in the professional advertising environment and learn much more from industry professionals through work placements.
