I am a 23-year-old multi-award-nominated journalist living in the South West of England. Included in my job as an editorial assistant, I am the Assistant Editor of The Sea, the bimonthly seafarers’ publication for the charity The Mission to Seafarers. Additionally, I have a monthly lifestyle and music show on community radio station Corinium Radio.
In July 2017, I gained my BA degree in English with advanced proficiency in French from the University of Exeter. While there, I held the role of Online Features Editor at the University’s student newspaper, Exeposé, and also had my own student radio show.
