This week we've welcomed a new member to the team. Chandni Unka has just completed a degree in Media & Cultural Studies at the University of Wolverhampton. Chandni has joined us for an internship as a PR Account Executive and we thought we'd ask her a few questions to get to know her better. We'll catch up with Chandni again at the end of her internship and see how she found the experience at S&U.
