My passion is radio. I’ve hosted shows on hospital radio, and had some fantastic opportunities to develop my presenting skills and build up industry contacts....Getting that first foot in the door from Edge Hill has really helped.

I worked on Channel Four’s The Secret Life of the Zoo. It’s been fantastic. I’ve met so many people. Being able to work on something you loved watching makes you want to go in every day.

I was sure I wanted to work for BBC Sport and was lucky enough to join them working on the Olympics. It was so motivating to push myself into becoming this mini junior production manager and I feel that I’ve grown up in the last year.
