Summer Catch up with the PR Fraternity

Happy Summer everyone! Hope everybody enjoyed the sun over the past couple of weeks. This post is just a catch up on what everyone has been up to over the past couple of months.

Last month, PR Fraternity students Ellie Tyrrell, Catriona Mcallister and me Jessica Mckenzie attended the Vlogstar workshop semi finals at the Google headquarters in central London. The day was very exciting and full of useful tips when blogging and vlogging.

The day began with a visit to Leon’s in St Pancras for a quick lunch, I personally recommend the fish finger wrap as it is delicious! Then we made our way to the headquarters where there were smoothies and a buffet for the semi-finalists. We were introduced to people from the Evening Standard, Youtube Space and the Jack Petchey foundation as they were all sponsors and contributors to the competition. We learnt techniques such as 3 point lighting and how to use it to set the mood. At the end of the day we were lucky enough to experience a panel with amazing Youtubers such as RollinUnGashaa  on their experiences as youtubers, the good, the bad, the ugly and their tips on how to succeed within the youtube realm.

Check out the vlogs created on our day down below! And don’t forget to subscribe for more videos with Ellie and Jess!
