MSc Media and Communications, graduated in 2009
Public Information Officer, United Nations
While studying at LSE I applied for the UN Young Professionals Programme to work in their Public Information department. While this was taking place I worked for a small startup, Human Digital, which gave me a lot of experience in research, social media and a general insight into creative agencies in the UK. This and other experiences helped during my recruitment process with the UN, which offered me a position as a news writer in September 2011.
I chose LSE for its diversity and Media and Communications because I wanted a broad perspective of how the media industry works. I learned the most from other students who opened up my perspectives and pointed me to new interests, but I am also extremely grateful for the LSE International Organizations Day because that is how I found out about my current job! In general, being at LSE was one of the most fantastic years of my life – filled with new knowledge, smart and warm people, and the sense of endless possibility.
