University of Leeds

Upper Second Class, History and Asia Pacific Studies

Although an unusual combination, I was able to study the subjects that I am truly passionate about, history and economics - with a little bit of politics and religion thrown in too! I lived in Asia for fourteen years and have always found the region fascinating, therefore AP studies seemed the perfect choice. My specialised history subject in my final year was the Civil Rights Movement, which supported my dissertation titled, 'Insider to Outsider: Leonard Chess, WVON, and the Civil Rights Movement' - a study of a black-orientated Chicago radio station and the conflicts within the working environment for both whites and Afro-Americans.

Writing and Research

Aside from my academic work I always tried to practice writing outside of an academic style. I wrote for the student newspaper, wrote and had a role as editor of the History Student Times, and was a contributor to the online magazine yourcoffeebreak.com. I also took extra-credit positions such as being a law research assistant in my second year, researching the role of disabled children within the context of family law.

I have always considered research and writing my strengths, and a natural extension of my love of reading.

Marketing and PR

I worked on several marketing campaigns on behalf of national companies during my second and third year at university. I learnt the importance of pursuing real results and how to manage a small team of others. I found these sorts of marketing roles easy, as I am very organised and get on with people easily. I worked on campaigns for clients such as Marks and Spencers, Herbert Smith Freehills, Eon and Jaguar among others.
