CURRICULUM VITAE

Allana Jade Berna Nixon

Personal Statement
Currently I am an Undergraduate at Birmingham City University, on the first year of the Media and
Communication (Television) BA (Hons) degree course. My first year modules are:

Studying the Media and Communication


Professional Media Practice
Popular Culture
Television, Film and Video Media
Radio Production
Television Location Production Skills
Television Studio Production Skills

Since November 2014 I recently worked part-time in Debenhams MK as a sales assistant and previously I
worked part-time with McDonalds MK as a Team member. I thoroughly enjoy working for Debenhams, due
to the service delivery, team working and customer interaction.
After completing my A levels at Oakgrove Sixth form, my results included a distinction (A*) in BTEC Music
Technology and a B in Sociology and an A level extended project dissertation.
Over the summer of 2015, a programme of work experience in the Oakgrove school musical Department,
with Tim MacDonald, Senior Technician and Tutor. My experience covered the roles of recording studio
technician, engineer and producer; live events sound technician, and video production editor.
For my personal development, and to build relevant, transferrable skills I took part in Oakgroves Peer
Mentoring Programme and training to become a school mediator; additionally with a small group of fellow
students, joining a community outreach programme to connect the elderly of Milton Keynes with the young of
Milton Keynes; also volunteering to help run a local charity shop; and gaining a certificate of graduation from
the NCS scheme for which I completed a prescribed course of extreme sports, team building exercises and
outdoor activities, and finally a community project challenge.
On a personal note, I formed a rock band and as lead vocalist, performed at a number of live venues. And at
a variety of events I helped to raise funds for local charities, by face painting, henna art and baking.
Now I have begun my Media Studies (Television) degree, I am seeking a part time position working
weekends, with an organisation who can offer greater opportunities more aligned to my career and personal
development goals in the media and communication profession.
