Where are you from?
Inverurie, Scotland

What was your undergraduate degree?
BA (Hons) Communication Design – Graphics, Illustration, Photography at RGU!

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
I decided to study Digital Marketing because it builds upon the skills I currently have in design and gives me the ability to create content that helps fulfill business goals, which hopefully will improve my employability after I graduate.  In addition, I love how ever-changing this subject is because it continually gives you the opportunity to learn and discover new things.

What do you like best about the course so far?
I am enjoying everything so far!  But learning HTML and CSS has been on my to-do list for a while, so getting stuck into this challenging subject has been exciting because it is a vital skill to have in the Digital Marketing industry.

What’s your favourite app or website, and why?
Right now, I’m loving Instagram, as I adore photography.  This platform is great to edit and share photographs on, and it is fantastic that people can like or comment on your photographs as this really boosts your confidence!  Instagram is also great for getting inspiration on a variety of subjects such as food and travel.

Tell us a random fact about yourself!
I studied at a film school in Denmark.
