My name is Harriet Elizabeth Tuckett and I am twenty years old. I am approaching the end of my second year as a student at the University of Chester in Cheshire where I am reading Journalism and Spanish BA (Hons). When not at University, I live in Norfolk but have lived in Spain for ten years. Whilst living in Spain, I went to boarding school in England, gaining my GCSE’s at St.George’s School, Ascot and after going on to achieve 3 A-levels in Spanish, German and Business Studies at Rugby School, Warwickshire.
I am fluent in Spanish and have a very good understanding of German. At the moment I am undergoing work experience at a PR and Marketing company based in the centre of Norwich called Media Jems. After this I will be working at Norwich’s and Chester’s local newspapers where I hope to write feature articles, as well as straight news stories and editorials. Also I’m hoping to carry out a few interviews!
I like to consider myself as having a lively and bubbly personality and I enjoy meeting new people. I am very sociable which is a good thing to be in this line of business! My dream for the future is to become involved in broadcasting and become a news reader somewhere like the BBC or SkyNews but for the meantime I am happy writing articles. I am still very young and have a lot to learn in Journalism. After I graduate I am wanting to sit the NCTJ exam for journalists in order to futher my knowledge in the subject. I am keen and willing to learn and hope that what I am doing now will stand me in great stead for the future.
I hope you enjoy reading the articles which I have posted and please feel free to email me with any questions or comments you may have.
