I’m Hollie Beard, a 20 year old Multimedia Journalism student at the University of Salford.
This portfolio showcases my work within the journalism industry, this includes pieces published online for different publications such as I Love Manchester and Quays News.
Following my third and final year at university, I aim to graduate in 2017 and use the knowledge I now have as a leap-pad for my future career in journalism.
The experience I have gained whilst studying in Manchester enables me to hold the skill-sets required to work effectively throughout a range of different online platforms.
When I am not at university, I have a part-time job at Richmond Tea Rooms as a waitress/bartender. This job has enabled me to interact with people from all walks of life and greatly increased my confidence with working independently but also working as part of a team.
I like to spend most of my spare time with friends and family, but also enjoy attending gigs and theatre shows. I am interested in many different genres of music, past and present, and this is something I would like to focus my career on in the future.
