I am currently a student at the university of Northampton who has just finished her second year of BA Events Management. Alongside that I am interning with Skills Hive as an Events Manager. I came to start my career in Events through my love for music. I play three musical instruments but did not want to go down the route of a teacher. I decided to use my skills otherwise within the music industry and fell in love with Event sector as a whole. My goal for the future is to start my own events company however in order to do so I will have to gain more experience in my sector but also raise my profile and funds. I will continue to intern and work on events either through freelancing or agencies as this will help me to get to where I want to be.

September 2014 – March 2015 Events assistant: The date for one event I was holding was fast approaching and the venue fell through. I took the initiative and spoke to people in my area to sort out an alternative event. I hadn’t realised I could work well under pressure and had considered myself a quick thinker.
May 2017 - July 2017 Events Manager: I constantly had to create copy and post on social media channels. This meant I had to think of creative posts which would relate to the audience I was targeting. I begin to see the creative qualities that I have.
