I'm Laura, a multimedia journalist from West Yorkshire, currently based in London. I have a passion for music and culture writing, as well as experience in podcasting, documentary filmmaking, news reporting, and feature-writing.
I'm currently in my final year of BA Journalism at City, University of London.
My qualifications include a year at the Danish School of Media and Journalism in Copenhagen, where I completed the TV and Media Production course, as well as Media Production and Management. Here I studied documentary filmmaking extensively, experimented with VR technology for journalism, completed an in-depth podcasting course, and worked on branding and marketing projects.
I cohost, produce and edit 'Yam On It', a podcast that combines pop culture and news in a conversational format, targeted towards young adults. We aim to break down complex stories in an accessible way while encouraging informed debate. A key value at Yam On It is to provide young people with the tools to recognise and combat fake news.

I have experience news reporting with the Copenhagen Post, where I investigated the issues faced by the international community in Denmark during the pandemic. I covered a range of stories, from workers' rights to disputes with landlords, and made the front page with my article about the Wolt Workers Union.

I undertook work experience with the Louisiana Channel - the Louisiana Museum's online video platform, where I spent several months working on a short film. I interviewed esteemed Danish artist Asmund Havsteen-Mikkelsen at his studio in Copenhagen, focussing on his view on the modern world, architecture, and his ambition to promote sustainability in his work. Alongside three talented filmmakers, I co-produced and co-edited the final video in order to align with the high standards and brand of the Louisiana Channel. Click here to watch my video.
At present, I am writing for Sister Magazine's website. My writing focuses on arts and culture, as well as feminism and social issues. The content varies from Q&A's, reviews, and features. Click here to read my work with Sister.
