I’m Hollie Beard, a 21 year old journalism graduate from 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 graduation in July, I am now hoping to 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.
Alongside my studies, 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.
