Eager follower of news, enthusiastic and adaptable.
I like to work hard for the sense of personal achievement.
I also try to be as ambitious as possible; always aiming high.
I observed the production of a BBC News Channel broadcast and gained valuable newsroom experience. I took part in a rundown meeting and learned how a news broadcast is operated from the gallery and how the presenter and director communicate throughout the programme.
Separately, I have shadow produced two evening programmes on BBC London 94.9. During these occasions, I answered phone calls from listeners and observed the producer.
2013 - 2014
City OnAir is the student radio station for City University London.
It was my responsibility to manage the on air content, team of contributors and the production of live and pre-recorded shows. The role required creativity and 'out of the box' thinking to generate new ideas for shows and production techniques. Notable shows include City OnAir News, Our Take On The News and the Students' Union Election 2014 coverage, which was live in the student bar at City University London.
Forerunner Records is a student-led record label at Birmingham Metropolitan College.
I initially interviewed bands and artists signed to the label for a weekly podcast feature, before joining the events team. In this role, I played a management role in organising and producing events - in particular, the 'This Is Forerunner' showcase event in March 2012. During this event, two VIP guest speakers gave workshops and introduced bands on two separate stages to a 'floating audience' of 600 people.
