My name is Luchia and I am currently a MSc Digital Marketing student at the University of Salford, writing my dissertation on social media marketing for the book publishing industry. As of April 2018 I am also a Corporate Document Writer! Writing for me is about more than just putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard), it’s about creating a connection with people and helping them as much as possible.
I’m a Geography graduate from the University of Manchester, having achieved a 2.1 as my final grade. The reason I studied Geography is because I’m fascinated by the world – I love nature and different cultures. In June 2017, I began studying for a Masters Degree in Digital Marketing and to read more about this change in career, take a look here.
I adore reading, so a lot of my blog posts are actually book reviews lately (I’m a NetGalley member also so I get to read awesome books before they’re published – thanks to some amazing publishers!).
I adore taking photographs, especially when it comes to animals and landscapes. I’m very fortunate to have been able to travel a lot, and I always make sure that my camera is ready for any opportunity that presents itself. I received my first DSLR camera (a Nikon D3000) for my GCSE results way back in 2010, which feels like a lifetime ago now! Whilst in my first year of University at the University of Manchester, I took photos for the the Mancunion – which was the on campus and online university newspaper. I had several of my photos published whilst doing this including some as ‘Photo of the Week’. From Summer 2016 I started to take things more seriously, resulting in myself being in a position where I wanted my own site to be able to display my photographs (and write a little too, another of my passions).
I love crafting things, I’ve been making a lot of polymer clay dragon sculptures which you can take a look at on my Etsy Store – ArtByLuchia. I also take advantage of my degree to put it into practice with advertising my crafts, through blog posts on this website and dedicated social media pages.
Other than photography and crafts, I also enjoy reading and I am an avid lover of anything related to fantasy and superheroes. I love young adult books especially and I’m happy to review books similar to those found here!
