Self description

Female , 28

I'm a 21 year old radio presenter/producer.

Currently I'm working for national digital radio station Amazing Radio, which only plays unsigned and independent music. I produce a 3 hour weekday afternoon show and present a specialist folk/roots/world music show which goes out twice a week.

In the past I've produced websites for the BBC and Channel 4, worked on developing web applications with independent company Maverick and blogged professionally. I've worked my way up through writing for localised and national music sites, managing a student radio station and generally getting involved where I can.

My CV is varied - I believe in being knowledgeable in the entire '360' of media. Highlights so far include co presenting on Myspace Radio with Alex Zane, blagging my way onstage with the Mystery Jets whilst working for the BBC and seeing my work all over e4.com whilst working at Channel 4

Life experiences

Radio

It took me a while to get my dream job - getting into radio is hard because it's such a small industry. However, I got there eventually!

Website production and New Media

I love working for websites - there's something so immediate about the journalism and the content you can create. To really get ahead in media, you need to be aware of how to use New Media in your favour.

Women

It's hopefully more rare these days, but my workplace is still about 80% male and until the end of Summer I'll be the only female voice on the station.
Let's change the odds...

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I definitely want to give something back. I've benefitted so much from people giving me their time and giving me a chance. It can be difficult to get an application form noticed however, let alone ace an interview. Hopefully there's some useful advice I can share...

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
