My name is Niuma Ugail, an enthusiastic, ambitious and conscientious person interested in taking up new challenges. I am originally from the small island nation in the Indian Ocean called The Maldives. I am enjoying my BA (Hons) Public Relations with Journalism degree at Leeds Beckett University, where I am expanding my confidence in networking. Studying a developed country is one of the most exciting and challenging opportunities I have ever received.

Due to my passion for being a master in communication, I try to use any opportunities that come my way; I am currently a writer at StudentWire one of the most successful online student magazines in the U.K. This has allowed me to feature my articles to a broader audience and improve my writing skills. Aside from this, I also write featured articles for “Maldives Insider”, which is the only prominent travel magazine in the Maldives. This has given me the ability to write in different formats and styles for a variety of purposes and audiences. It has also given me the chance to enhance professional techniques. These skills encourage me to undertake professional writing and enable me to express my creativity.

I can strategically manage several IT programs, including Photoshop, CorelDraw, Adobe Premiere Pro, Microsoft Office, Google Analytics and WordPress. I have developed problem-solving skills and learned how to work under pressure through my part-time job as a customer service member at one of the leading retail business in the UK, the Co-operative Group. Dealing with customers has improved my communication skills and shown me how to work successfully, both within a team and independently.

My ability to balance my blog, writing jobs, my part-time job and achieving high grades proves that I am highly organised and motivated to complete any task to the best of my ability. I am looking forward to using my knowledge of PR in the industry and working with other like-minded individuals. I am currently searching for short-term placements to gain experience of in-house PR or working in PR agency.
