Who am I and how did I get here?
It has all been a happy coincidence. I feel like one thing lead to another, and this is where I was always meant to be. I wrote a few updates for a client one day and helped create a campaign strategy. After that, I started helping with more and more tasks. A year later, I was creating client graphics, writing weekly updates and publishing blogs. I truly embraced every task. I just loved how every client had a different tone and style. I’ve always loved writing since I could write, I wrote silly short stories and poems, but I never knew how to make that into a career. Social media was kind of the answer! I could write all day long then as platforms developed graphics, photography and videography came into the mix and added a fresh new dynamic. Providing even more creative areas for me to sink my teeth in to.
What does the future hold?
For me, it’s all about learning and developing. And I don’t mean, finding the next big trend and going viral. I mean actually learning and perfecting skills. I have always found myself signing up to new courses, spending hours watching tutorials and seeking out inspiration. I just love learning. The last few years I have learned how to write press releases, design brochures and create websites. I think for me the next area I would like to really enhance is social media advertising. I really believe this area is huge and believe it or now, it’s going to get even bigger. We already have a number of clients who we manage campaigns for, but I would really like to keep enhancing my skills in this area as it’s going to be so beneficial to our clients.
