Hello… My First Post

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Hi! That’s my application video above if you’ve not yet seen it. I was really excited when I received an email telling me I’d been successful in getting through to the interview stage for Lives Online and now here I am! Who knew Friday 13th could be a lucky day?!

Now that’s out of the way let me tell you a bit about myself. I’m Tasha, I’m recently 21 (Friday was the big day) and I’m studying Media Production: Video and New Media. I’m in my final year now so the pressure is on and the word ‘dissertation’ is mentioned on a daily basis but don’t let that scare you; at least that’s what I keep telling myself!

I’m going to be showing you my favourite places around the North East, keeping you updated on what I get up to at university and giving you an insight into all the other exciting things I get up to! As I’m the music editor for Spark Magazine, a large amount of my time is spent keeping up with the latest news and releases, going to gigs and chatting to bands and artists so I’ll be taking you backstage with me to meet some of the new up-and-coming names to look out for and hopefully a few of my favourites too!

Music is obviously one of my really big interests but aside from that I’m keen to get involved with clubs and societies at university and I’m currently a member of Snowsports (USSC) and Equestrian.  I am considering branching out and seeing if I can learn to dance this year, hopefully with the help of two fellow Lives Onliners; Usman and Natasha who can both tutor me!

The main thing I want to get out of my final year at Sunderland (apart from a great degree) is a range of experience and I think by throwing myself into a number of different things and keeping myself busy, that shouldn’t be a problem at all.

Feel free to ask me any questions either on here or via Facebook and watch my life change!
