What were you doing before starting your role at Reading Solutions?

When I finished university, I was mainly working as a shop assistant for a sweet shop before I got a job at a marketing agency in Sunderland.

Then tried to travel around South America, which got cut short because of Covid-19, and I was stranded in Argentina for 2 months.

Since I have been back in the UK, I have been working freelance with various businesses and improving my design skills.


What attracted you to the education sector?

Because of my dyslexia when I was at school, I struggled with reading and writing, and without the necessary support, I would have struggled a lot more. I wanted to work for a company where the focus is helping children or being involved in programmes that are vitally important for students’ development.


How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

Enthusiastic, creative, and determined.


What do you enjoy most about being working in the Reading Solutions’ Marketing Team?

I love working in a team environment and being able to bounce ideas off the rest of the team.


When you are not working, what do you enjoy doing?

I love to play football and have recently joined a Sunday league team. I also enjoy going out with my friends and whenever I have the time playing on my PS4.


What advice would you give to your younger self?

Take things one day at a time and don’t put too much pressure on yourself.


What was your favourite childhood book?

I didn’t really have a favourite, but I used to love the Asterix and Obelix comic books


What piece of tech can you not live without and why?

Probably my iPad. Not only is great for work, but I also like to have Netflix or Disney + on in the background whilst I cook.


If you had a superpower, what would it be and why?

Teleportation! Because it would mean I could go wherever I wanted, and I would save a fortune on travelling.
