Hello! I’m Amy, a 20-year-old Digital Design student at Brunel University.


I am passionate about photography, technology and design; since being at uni I have developed a keen interest in web design especially. My interest in web design and photography has motivated me to study more out side my classes and I've even started a small web design and photography business making websites for Horse Riders. Since doing this my HTML and CSS skills have greatly improved and I've also been learning more JavaScript. I am always passionate about what I do and if I lack understanding in a subject I love to do extra research to extend my skills. I have really enjoyed studying my university course and I am now excited to work as part of a team in the industry on my placement year.
