Hey! I’m Michaella, Aberfield’s newest PR Consultant.

Posted on Tue 23rd May, 2017 in: Appointments, Graduate, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Bradford Airport, Welcome To Yorkshire by Michaella Biscomb

 

 

 

I actually interned with Aberfield way back in 2015 and I’m delighted to be back, starting my career with the team - especially as they celebrate its fifth anniversary and the accolade of Outstanding PR Consultancy AND Outstanding Small PR Consultancy of the Year 2016-2017!

I have just finished my PR & Communications degree at Leeds Beckett University which amongst many other things, included a stint studying abroad at the University of Western Sydney. I previously worked in the public sector in a secondary school and then spent my placement year with Welcome to Yorkshire, helping to deliver the Tour de Yorkshire 2016.

My passion  is definitely tourism and hospitality, and I have been lucky to work in-house with some great organisations, as well as specialising in destination marketing as part of my degree.  I’m excited to be bringing my experience to some of the fantastic clients here at Aberfield.

 

 

 

 

A few things to know about me:

 

  • I’m Leeds born and bred, I’m passionate about the city and I’m particularly interested in how we can encourage more students to stay here after graduation.

  • I am a pescatarian – I gave up eating meat after adopting backyard chickens. My favourite food is anything with pasta!

  • Monkeys are my favourite animals and my least are most definitely swans – I was bitten by one as a child and the fear remains.

  • I loved being at University and one of my favourite memories was a trip to Malaysia, where we presented our ideas on how to protect the Borneo rainforest to the World Wildlife Fund. It was a long way to go for three days!
