- Borough: Newham
- Year-long placement: BBC
- Role: Learning and Community Engagement (events, marketing, press and business) at BBC Proms
I’ve been involved in music as both an artist and an industry professional since my college days. After a few internships and starting my journey as a freelance social media manager, I graduated with a Music Industry Management degree in the Spring of 2019. My degree opened my eyes to aspects of the industry I had never considered.
I actually spent the following summer completely focused on songwriting as an artist and staying inspired. During that time, a panel event sparked my interest in creating ideas that help communities grow musically. So, during my placement at the BBC, I am excited to learn how to plan and execute community music initiatives. I am also a curious person, and the BBC is huge, so I’m open to learning how other areas of the team operate. STEP seems like a great network to be a part of, so I’m really grateful for this opportunity to grow as much as I can while I’m here.
