My name is Elena and I am pleased to introduce myself as one of the latest additions to the Red 24 team!
Things you might like to know about me:
Q: How an earth do I pronounce your name?
Q: Does it upset you that you will never get a coke with your name on it?
A: Who comes up with these questions?!
(a little bit).
Q: What were you up to before becoming Red 24’s latest MVP?
A: Last year I graduated from the University of Edinburgh, after 4 very enjoyable years in Scotland. Whilst at university I spent every summer working at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival; I did everything from working in a box office to running a press office, and throughout my time I was blessed enough to come in contact with some amazingly talented people. After moving down to London I carried out a brief stint in events as part of the awards team for a publishing company, but I soon found myself wanting to get back into the arts industry… so here I am.
Q: Why the blog title?
A: Because *insert your name* I went a bit festival crazy this summer; not only did I carry out the annual trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, but I also had a whack at Latitude and V-Festival as well. All three festivals were extremely enjoyable and it only took my best friend and I 2 hours to assemble our tent, which I’m pretty proud of.
I also saw two absolute legends live: Beyonce and Daniel Kitson (unfortunately not at the same time).
