Hi, my name is Lauren Armstrong and I am a Media and Communications student in the first year of my degree at Teesside University.
From a young age, different aspects of the media have intrigued me, from advertising, film, television, and media production. This interest has developed in recent years through my study of Media and Photography prior to attending University. Studying media has already allowed me to investigate how it plays an integral role in how we interact our opinions and reactions to the events surrounding us. The media itself is a constant presence that has become essential to society and I am fascinated by the different techniques people within the media use to convey information. I am excited and hopeful that my degree will allow me to further explore the impact that media has on daily life.
Although I have not yet completed any work experience relating to the media, this is something I am looking forward to hopefully doing during my degree. I have previously done work experience in a local primary school in which I spent time working with young children. During that week, my skills of time management, planning, team working and communication with both adults and children were enhanced, which has benefited how I present my ideas.
My interests include watching films, listening to and playing music, reading, writing and photography. I also enjoy spending time with family and volunteering within my community as often as possible.
