I was lucky enough to be chosen for a Tuskar placement in 2010. Before that my only experience of work had been as a part-time waitress, so I was very excited to be told I would be working on the set of Channel 4's Big Brother for two weeks.
Since then I have gone on to University and successfully come out with a degree in English and American Studies and have almost four years experience working within print advertising. I am enjoying my current role working in the commercial department at News UK as an Account Manager for the Times and Sunday Times magazines.
The Tuskar Trust gave me the opportunity to experience media first hand and was great to see the variety of roles available beyond my family's professions and the usual career paths offered at college.
