May 2017 After completing a three week unpaid placement at St. George’s Crypt in Leeds, the biggest homeless shelter the city has, my work and passion for their centre has created a working relationship.

April and May 2017 I have completed a three week placement at True North Productions, one of the UKs biggest TV production companies.
