Good Kid, Maad City: An Introduction (London, GiveMeTap & my journey)

This week I have embarked on an exciting journey. I have moved to UK’s concrete jungle as the PR/Social Media Intern for social enterprise, GiveMeTap.

I must admit, I didn’t realise how ‘loaded’ that last sentence is; A move, a title, a company and a name. It is impossible for me to tell this piece of news to anyone without being subjected to a list of questions about each of these components. These are all questions from people I know, love and very much miss now that i’m far from home. I wish I could explain in depth to everyone about the amazing work I will be doing over the Summer, helping villages in Africa through reducing plastic waste in the UK, however, after a long day it just won’t be possible. Frankly, you know I’ll be too busy watching The Mindy Project…

Hence, Good Kid Maad City. This feature series will act as a communicator to all of those who I wish I could talk to personally. I will (most probably, weekly) update you all on what i’m actually doing at GiveMeTap, as well as my experiences in London, outside of office hours.

This week, I have already learned so much about water and about how social media can be effectively managed for business. It is only the end of day 2, but I have invaded the Twittersphere, improved my writing through a Press Release and have even brainstormed some great 1000883_10151497305901915_11996461_npress ideas with The Water Guy himself. I have taken a shot of water, tweeted a really lame ‘selfie’ and have realised that a lot more of this behaviour will occur. Hopefully my blogging activity (and quality) will increase through managing the GiveMeTap blog and posting my  stuff on here.

I cannot wait to share this journey with you all and subsequently the message of sustainability. I hope I can encourage you to buy a bottle and suggest a tap… also please find me a great job so I can spend more time on this than job applications…

Catch up with you soon!

Exams eat the soul…

Apologies for the lack of content over the last month. During exam period, it is so hard to stay creative without going overboard as a form of procrastination! Here are some things to look forward to when Sanum Jain and adosofpersonalwhim are back in full force…

A piece on the Abercrombie & Fitch marketing strategy.

My experience of racial tension since the Woolwich Murder.
