Self description

Female , 23

Currently in the midst of studying the International Baccalaureate, I also run a local website design business in my spare time.

Being part of the 4Talent Youth Advisory Panel has given me the opportunity to work with other young people who share my interest in the media and I've found it throroughly rewarding.

Other interests include illustration, music (in particular drumming & percussion), theatre and editing the college magazine.

I'm a bit of a chatterbox with a slight shoe addiction (but sadly no Imelda Marcos-style funding...) and aspirations in journalism, broadcasting and publishing.

Life experiences

Website design

In no way claiming to be an expert, but greatly interested in both design and development, with a reasonable knowledge of HTML, CSS and PHP, I run a small website design business for local enterprises and organisations. I have experience in setting up and organising a small business and can offer clear advice on anyone interested in starting out in the fields of website design and development.

Drumming

Though, once again, not claiming to be the expert, I have quite a bit of experience; playing percussion for a musical theatre company annually (Fame, Joseph, Oliver, Guys & Dolls etc.) as well as drumming with numerous ensembles and recognising the challenges a young female drummer can face.

Education choices

Being in education does give you one area of certain expertise and, feeling confident with the choices I have made this far, alongside regularly finding myself advising others, whether it's GCSEs, A Levels, International Baccalaureate or, as I am now, considering further education choices, I'm happy to help and advise, particularly in the increasingly uncertain climate students face today. I've also had the opportunity to discuss the issue with media professionals through my work with 4Talent and other media networking for those with a particular interest in this career area.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I'm always willing to listen, or just up for a chat - any way I can help! I can also appreciate the more challenging aspects of trying to take those first steps towards a career in media (as I'm hopefully taking them myself at the moment) and would love to offer the benefit of any experience I have gained through 4Talent.

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!'
