Graduate and Volunteer at GTFM Radio

  • Location: Cardiff and Pontypridd

I am currently a Broadcast Journalist at GTFM Radio. At the radio I have trained volunteers with the skills needed to be a journalist, as well as promote the radio at local events. I am an enthusiastic and hard working individual hoping to work within the journalism industry. I recently graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan University with a 2.1 in English and Creative Writing. 

I have always loved to write from a young age, I created a magazine cover from scratch and when I was 10 years old I created a full magazine out of paper with a friend for fun. It was then I released my journalistic talents and that journalism would be the right career for me, as I was always writing stories. I love the way it feels and how i can express myself through my writing skills and unique writing style. I would love a chance to showcase my writing to the world.

I have written, produced, edited and directed my own short film - which is in the feature video of my profile titled The Fame Game. I am now currently in the process of working on my first novel - hoping for publication. I also have a printed folder full of published articles and many other creative work that I am proud of.
