My personal tutor at university has always been a big motivation for me, all it would take was to hear her speak about everything she has done and I would instantly be motivated to do everything the best I possibly could. During my time at university however, and having to gain experience, I struggled to do so and although I gained different experiences, it isn’t as much as I would have liked.
After meeting with my personal tutor, she suggested that when I graduate it would be best to take some time to figure out what path I would like to go down. Although I have always had a clear vision of the paths I would like to go down, I thought this was a good idea, and an idea that took the weight off my shoulders. I have therefore decided that after I graduate it would be best to spend the year thinking what it is I want to be a part of, and it would be great to try and freelance for companies in order to gain the experience I feel as though I have missed out on. By doing this, next year I will be in a much better position to share my experiences with others.
I have always wanted a career where I wake up to an alarm and dive out of bed happy to start the day. I currently work as a duty manager at Iceland Foods and I really do love it there. I have learned so much and the role itself has built me into the person I am today. I have been encouraged to make my way further up the ladder, and this is because how invested I am in Iceland Foods and I have gained loads of experiences to the point where I know I am capable of exceeding. I therefore have to apply this to the media industry in a way, as I have gained experience but this isn’t enough to make me a confident person, if I was to be offered a job in the media industry I would be incredibly excited as I am a quick learner, but I also want to be ready to show them what I am made of.
So, that is what is next. I am 21 years of age and I have been in education since I was 4 years old. I am a curious and creative person and would like to see where my free mind leads me once I finish my degree. In the mean time, I will keep my blog updated.
Enjoy what you do!
