Promoting Harlow College is a job that is full of surprises

LEANNE West, a cheerful, confident people-person has been busy working on recruitment campaigns, getting stunned by Prime Ministers and also being the college’s photographer.

‘My job title is Lead Creative, but my role is very varied which I love. I manage the social media, which is Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and I upload to those every day.’ Leanne said.

She added: ‘Every day is different, that’s why I love it. I could be working on brochure design, the next day I could be working on a six-week project and suddenly I’m taking pictures of David Cameron and Ed Miliband.

‘Recently I worked on a recruitment campaign, photographing and interviewing alumni. I then worked closely with an illustrator ex BA (Hons) Graphic Design student from UCH, where we designed a section of the Harlow College website, banners and buttons for social media, bus adverts and bus shelter adverts.’

Leanne added, ‘I love it when I am in a room when initial ideas are being discussed; I like being involved in every stage and see it develop over all stages.

‘There are always challenges and within Graphic Design there are always lots of opinions but it makes me work harder and try to rise to the challenge.’

She added: ‘In my free time I do photography, such as weddings, family and baby photoshoots. I love it! I am a family person, so I spend a lot of time with family and friends.

‘If I could interview anyone it would be Stacey Dooley, I just absolutely love her!’

I am a strong character, who is determined to follow my goals and achieve my dreams. Ever since I was able to write, I would always carry a notebook and pen with me and I would fill the pages with songs, poems and stories. Writing has always been an outlet for me, a way for me to express my emotions and to overcome any difficulties. I used to want to be a singer-songwriter, though; unfortunately I have not been blessed with the best singing voice, so that dream had to go. Nevertheless, I still write songs and maybe one day, I will hear someone singing them on the radio. My dream would be to become a successful writer in the future; when people hear my name, I want them to think of a particular novel or article that I’d written. I would love to work in publishing or screenplays because I feel it will ignite a spark inside of me, if I see my name in print or in the credits of a film. I have a range of topics I am passionate about, from films and TV series as they give me inspiration for my own work, to being involved with promoting the rights of disabled people, as that’s a subject close to my heart. So far, my articles have covered a range of subjects; profile pieces, disability rights, college open evening, the new Stansted Airport College, and the Apple Distinguished Status at Harlow College.
