The UK’s Best PR Student Blogger 2018 – that’s me!

Well who’d have thought? I certainly wouldn’t have. Shock, elation and more shock were all feelings felt on Friday morning when I received the news. I had no idea we had even come to the end of the #BestPRBlogs calendar for another year so was not expecting the result to…
