Hi! I’m Emma, a new addition to Media Street. I’ll be working as a Content Curator intern for the next few months, so I thought I’d write a quick blog post so you can get to know me.
Originally from ‘sunny’ Cornwall, I’m currently studying English at Exeter University. So far during my degree I’ve probably researched multiple hundreds of books and articles for assignments; luckily I’m one of those people that actually enjoys spending time in the library. This has led to a real interest in sourcing key information and presenting it in interesting, engaging ways, which I’m sure will be developed at Media Street.
I’m also Features Editor of the university’s newspaper, Exeposé. Editing the paper, I’m learning every day about liaising with writers to create articles tailored for our readership, along with using programmes such as InDesign, Photoshop and social media to create dynamic layouts offering high quality information. Now at Media Street I’m gaining more knowledge in these areas in a marketing capacity.
Other passions of mine include photography, cooking, music and generally all things creative. I play the violin, guitar, ukulele and have been singing to a very mediocre standard for years and enjoy quietly playing to myself when no one’s listening. I also run a food blog which handily combines the two loves of my life, food and writing, with the added bonus of photographing the end results.
As one of the ‘internet generation’, I’ve always been surrounded by the web, but finding out about how it all really works is fascinating. I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in at Media Street, utilising the five years I’ve spent in the customer service industry in a newly creative manner, learning from the team about the marketing industry, and writing every day.
