Digital PR Coordinator
Amy, from Skelton is a 19-year-old Journalism student at Teesside University. She was initially drawn to Journalism for its broadness and freedom to write content on a range of different topics. By exploring this career further, she found a passion for PR and social media in which she wants to focus her time and effort into. She has recently joined the Assist team as the digital PR coordinator.
Amy currently works part time as a leisure centre assistant where she contributes to social media content and engaging with both new and current customers. She hopes that her work for Assist will enhance her PR and social media skills further which will benefit her in all aspects of her career.
In her spare time, Amy is an athlete competing in the 100m hurdles. She also enjoys socialising with friends, watching crime documentaries and of course, going on holiday.
Since joining Assist I have been invited to events including Hidden Women of Teesside, where I had the chance to network with local business women and build contacts. I felt very welcomed and part of something supportive of where I'm at today and what I'm trying to achieve. I now have an experienced mentor for the next year to help me focus and build my dreams. Lastly I was invited to the Assist Christmas meal which was amazing as being self-employed and a small grassroots organisation, it can get lonely so I was grateful for the opportunity to connect with other women feeling the same way and trying to achieve great things.

I found Assist through a love of books and a desire for personal development but what I discovered was so much more. Whatever you come to Assist for it will benefit all aspects of your life; personal, professional and community. It is positive action for women on Teesside to support and empower each other and most importantly, to thrive. Why would you not want to be a part of this?

ASSIST is just the most wonderful organisation. Filled with decent, powerful, creative, useful, intelligent and interesting people. And, the networking meetings smell so much better than normal ones :)

Assist is a great place to meet, connect and collaborate with businesswomen from across the Tees Valley. It's welcoming and informal atmosphere for networking, combined with the diverse range of business topics it addresses on behalf of its members is both interesting and informative. This winning combination means i learn something new each time i attend and its why i keep coming back.
