Melissa is a gap year student from the University of Leeds and is about to undertake a degree in journalism. Initially interning with us a day a week, Melissa is building up her hours to spend as much time as possible in the Approach offices, working on PR and social media audits, media sell-ins and creating social media content for a variety of clients.
Melissa’s creativity and love for writing shines through her blog posts which she crafts with enthusiasm and an explorative mindset. This talent for the written word lends itself to her work with press releases, where she combines her quirky tone of voice with the necessary components of a story which are picked up by numerous publications.
She also used skills from her media A-level to get stuck into community event, Ilkley Carnival, single-handedly filming and editing a promotional video for the event’s website.
At Approach you’ll most likely find me…typing up a storm! Whether it’s press releases, blogs or social media posts, I love the written word.
