Meet Stand Agency’s… Jade Kupoluyi!
How and why did you get involved in PR?
Whilst studying economics and politics at university, I was always intrigued by the current affairs stories I read in print and online media. I knew I wanted a role that would challenge me and enable me to work with organisations that have a story to tell. After a big search for my first PR role, I was really excited to land a paid internship here at Stand Agency.
What attracted you to work at Stand Agency?
I researched the work that Stand does and I was drawn to their client list. It was full of organisations with great causes that were having a positive influence on society.
What do you enjoy doing beyond the walls of Stand Towers?
I’m an absolute music junkie so it’s likely that I’ll be reviewing a gig or festival somewhere in London. I also love to travel and photography, so I try to visit countries I’ve never been to before and take pictures of things and buildings that catch my attention.
In another life, what profession other than yours would you have attempted?
In another life if I had a good singing voice I would have tried to become a singer, maybe through applying to The X Factor! I always sing to myself but my voice is honestly terrible!
What pearls of wisdom can you impart to those embarking on a career in PR?
Don’t give up! It took me a very long time to find an internship within the PR industry. As the saying goes, all the good things worth having never come easy, so believe in your struggle and stay confident that your big break is just around the corner.
