What have you been doing since leaving Exeter, and what are you doing now?

I built a career as a digital product marketer, working for a number of SME’s and start-ups. I have done this alongside building my own businesses, including a meal-prep business and a marketing agency. 

Why did you choose this career? And what do you enjoy most about your work?

I tried starting my own enterprises both before and during University, but my marketing skills held me back. I invested time learning how to become a better marketer and ultimately that’s what led me to become a digital marketer. I enjoy using technology to find innovative solutions, and the ability to work wherever I want. 

Please tell us if you were a member of any societies, groups or sports clubs?

I played for 1’s for EUAFC Men’s Football Team. I also played Futsal. 

What did you enjoy most about your programme and what was the biggest highlight?

Being able to meet and work with such a diverse cohort. Collaborating on group projects and gainer a deeper understanding of industries opened my eyes up to the array of opportunities available post-study. The option to study abroad briefly was also a highlight. 

What did you enjoy most about studying here?

Exeter is my home town, so to be able to welcome international students to my place of birth was a real honour. Being on campus at the business school fuels you with energy, especially sharing spaces with bright and passionate people. 

Why did you choose to study at Exeter?

The quality of the programme gave me confidence that it would enhance my future career opportunities. 

What skills and experiences have been most useful for your career?

Being inquisitive, questioning the ‘why’. Being able to collaborate effectively in diverse teams. 

What advice would you give to a current student who wishes to pursue your career?

Make the most of every opportunity available to you. Gain as much exposure to as many different experiences in as many locations, industries, and jobs as possible. 

What are your plans for the future?

There will always be value in building cross-cultural relationships, and I want to build a business that brings people together and improves the world we live in.
