Daisy take a well earned break

Daisy Simpson, 2011 graduate, has pulled off something of a double act reunion by interviewing pop diva Kiki Dee – having previously worked as an intern at an event run by Elton John, whose first number one hit was a duet with Kiki, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” way back in 1976.

She got the opportunity when Your Local Magazine, based in Daisy’s home county of Norfolk, wanted someone to talk to Kiki Dee for their November issue. As a joint PR and journalism graduate, Daisy was the ideal interviewer.

Jess at Peppa Pig World Launch 2011

I studied Public Relations at the University of Lincoln from 2006 to 2009. Throughout the course I was continuously surprised by the diverse range of topics covered and the often intriguing theories that lay behind them. To supplement my degree, I chose to complete a summer of work experience with a PR agency in order to gain some hands on experience, which I thoroughly recommend, as for me this was not only great experience but led to a job offer from that agency once I graduated.
