I was delighted to be named Student Journalist of the Year 2016 during the inaugural Words By Women Awards!
I’m currently on a two-week internship at GQ on their Digital Features desk.
These are the stories I’ve had published online during my first week, all of which I pitched.
In another blog post for The Guardian Student Bloggers, I wrote about my experience of organising ‘Colour Me Political’, a one-day student art project offering Exeter university students a creative medium to express their thoughts on the new government.
On the 5th I ran for Co-Features Editor for Exeposé, the student newspaper at Exeter university. I was delighted to to be elected and will begin my role in May. I’ll work within the committee to produce the paper fortnightly, sourcing material and high profile interviews. I’ll also be trained up in InDesign. Features journalism is what I’m passionate about and I cannot wait to get started!

Last week I had the pleasure of co-interviewing Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party, in the run up to the 2015 elections. We covered, among other things, her views on the televised election debates and her Minimum Military Preparation security policy in wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks.
