What I'm doing now

I currently work in Mindshare Media Agency as a Media Planner. Every time I am about to do something, I always remember the things I’ve learnt from lecturers. Along with all the practice exercises that we had, it’s truly amazing how I can apply them at work.  Marketing related roles usually involve many areas, therefore I’m grateful to Lancaster for having the chance to study such a generous range of subjects. 

My best Lancaster memory

The entire four years at Lancaster can be described as one single and the best memory in my life so far. But to distinguish the most memorable thing is to say that I miss it when the ducks are not there on my way to work to brighten up my day, as they always did on my way to the library.

What Lancaster means to me

Lancaster was like a second home where I received support and became a professional individual with a clear vision of where to pursue my career. Sometimes it can be challenging, but ultimately worth it. During my studies, I had an excellent opportunity to work in groups with students from diverse backgrounds that both enhanced my interpersonal skills and allowed me to acquire a network of friends. Lancaster turned my university life into a truly valuable and precious experience. I am proud to be a Lancaster University graduate of 2016. 

Why I volunteer as an alumni group co-ordinator

I believe it’s great to keep in touch with those you have already studied with as well as current and prospective students. Such networking enables us to share the personal experience, provide the support and learn from each other, to be one ‘Lancaster’ community where we also can have a chat about those precious moments!
