Brief profile

I am a science graduate with a keen interest in media and passion for writing. During my time at university I worked as a contributing writer for a South Asian entertainment website, Thamarai.com, where I wrote a range of articles including film reviews and interviews. After my graduation in June 2012, I undertook a three-month editorial and features internship at Asian Woman Magazine. Here, I subbed over 60 articles in the website’s CMS, ran the brand’s social media feeds, sourced images and products for print articles, and liaised with PRs for articles for both print and web. For the past 7 months I have been working as the editor of Thamarai.com, which has further allowed me to build on my current skill-set. I am familiar with using Content Management Systems and am also a versatile writer with a diverse range of interests. Being active on a number of social networks including Twitter (@_kavya_) and Pinterest, I am confident in using such platforms to both promote work and connect with people from all over the world. I have also done some pro bono work creating and proofreading press releases, and have some basic photography, Photoshop and video editing knowledge. As a person, I am hard-working, confident and dedicated. I enjoy working in a team but am just as capable of working independently to achieve the required results. I am outgoing and friendly, and able to maintain a positive outlook even at the most stressful of times!
