Personal Statement I am a determined young professional coming to the end of my final year of the Photographic Journalism course at Leeds Beckett University. I hold a positive attitude towards my work, and I am motivated to succeed in the digital marketing industry. Throughout my work experience, I have been able to work with little supervision, which makes me flexible in my approach. Throughout my studies on the BSc (Hons) Photographic Journalism course, I have developed my skills in SEO, copywriting, and I have grown in my photography and InDesign abilities. I am highly skilled in various industry recognised software, including MS Project and Adobe InDesign, and I am versatile with PC and Mac operating systems.
