A Journalism and Events Management graduate, who has had coverage on community and local BBC radio in the UK and commercial radio overseas.
When Radio Star Jo Whiley opened her very own radio studio, after third-year student Bhavini Mistry and I were selected to interview live.
I'm 22 years old with a big interest in pursuing a career within the radio industry. I have been driving for just over 5 years. I visit the gym 5 days a week, really enjoy gardening, socialising and here's just a random ambition of mine, one day, I'd like to restore a classic Mini.
In June, I'm heading to Dubai to work for Gulf News, Radio 1 and 2, to add to my radio work experience. This is an opportunity that I secured through networking on Twitter. I am funding this through my supermarket job and with some help from the University of Northampton's Vice Chancellors Fund award.
My industry experience
I initially began my career in Hospital Radio, building upon my presenting skills. This then progressed to a voluntary position with Northampton's community radio station, Inspirtion FM, where I worked 12 hours a week as a Broadcast Researcher. In this time, I created 7 feature packages, a number of voxes and arranged and presented live and pre-recorded interviews. I was also a presenter on the weekly Friday drive-time show, The Student Show. From this experience I had a 3-part feature broadcast on BBC Radio Northampton.
I then achieved one-week of work experience within that BBC Local Station, where I learned how to use the essential software, helped production control by answering the phones and created 3 voxes for broadcast.
I have recorded 4 news bulletins for 3 commercial radio stations covering parts of Tenerife, the Canary Islands, Gran Canaria and La Palma, which I achieved by putting myself out there and creating this website.
I have also produced more for BBC Radio Northampton since finishing my degree.
In addition, I am also familiar with marketing, PR and sub-editing for print and online magazines. I am however, also really keen to get into voiceover work too.
