At 18 years old, it seemed a good idea to fly the coup and move 300 miles away to a city that was soon to be branded the ‘saddest place to live in Britain’. Guessed yet? I moved all the way north to Aberdeen for university. After too many cold years, I’ve managed to escape and move back to my homeland of Yorkshire with a Communication with Public Relations degree.
After four weeks holding up at my family home in Ripon, living out of boxes/bags and job hunting, I’m so lucky to be able to begin my career as a Junior Design Account Handler with Raw Creative in Harrogate. During my interview, I knew this job was the one. It’s now 4:38pm on my first day, and I am so excited to get fully immersed in everything! Someone said to me that my first day in a job would be the first day of working for the rest of my life. But I don’t see it like that – it is the first day of doing what I love in the perfect environment. I couldn’t ask for more!
A few facts:
- I’m an avid Newcastle United fan, who professes to be a Geordie born in Yorkshire.
- You can find me on a Saturday afternoon chasing a red leather ball and sporting a piece of willow.
- I have two nicknames which seemed to have stuck (thanks to the cricket boys), ‘Disco’ and ‘TPT’.
Here is the irony about my journey so far (once I’ve moved to Harrogate) – I will have moved from the ‘saddest place to live in Britain’ to the ‘happiest town to live in the UK’. And I couldn’t be happier!
