Robyn Challans is studying creative advertising at Leeds College of Art, and is about to go into her last year of university. Here she talks about her first steps into the creative industry.

Robyn Challans is a 20 year old student at Leeds College of Art studying BA (Hons) Creative Advertising. Now she is going into her final year and is just about to take her first steps into the creative industry. Robyn wants to understand what it is like to work in a professional advertising agency and is also hoping to determine the right role to pursue in the future.

What attracted you to wanting to work in the creative industries?

As cliché as it sounds, it all started when I was very young, specifically when the Rugrats animation series started on Nickelodeon. Initially I would copy how the cartoons looked and then I would interpret how the show would end and make storyboards.
