"...Energy, intelligence and skill"
"Priyanka brings energy, intelligence and skill to the projects she works on. She quickly understands what the message, tone and language of a piece of work requires and diligently ensures it’s achieved!"
Director of Network, The Foyer Federation
"...Strives for perfection"
"I have known Priyanka for over two years now and I can honestly say that I have never worked with someone as passionate as her. As Editor-in-Chief at The IPF, she took our digital publication to the next level - from organising youth-led events at The Shard, London, to putting together vital research. Priyanka doesn't only manage a team of journalists, but she also makes sure that every team member feels highly appreciated for their work. It goes without saying that she is committed to every single project she gets involved in - and always strives for perfection. I could not recommend Priyanka enough."
Managing Editor, International Press Foundation
"... Nothing short of exceptional"
"Priyanka's commitment to nurturing the talent of young journalists is nothing short of exceptional. Having worked alongside her for several months, I've seen Priyanka excel not only at the core elements of her role - recruiting new contributors, suggesting content and editing submissions - but also go above and beyond to broaden the IPF's remit. She was instrumental in championing our first piece of research, and organised our flagship debate on the EU referendum. On a personal level, she has always been supportive of my own writing, providing considered feedback that has allowed me to develop my skills. Her dedication and reliability mean that she is a joy to work with."
Health Editor, International Press Foundation
"... Much valued member of the team"
"Priyanka's writing ability was of particular value to the organisation. Whilst adjusting the tone and style as appropriate, Priyanka wrote with precision and an excellent sense of narrative, often up against tight deadlines. This attention to detail was also evident in her approach to proofreading.
Special mention should be given to Priyanka's work with UNA-UK's social media channels. Her ability to engage with our followers on social media led to a widening of responsibilities, culminating in the key role she played at our flagship event UN Forum 2014. During the event, Priyanka managed the live-update feeds on our Twitter and Facebook channels, providing a compelling and eloquent commentary of the event outline. The social media component of the event was extremely successful and comprised a level of online engagement which led to the event trending among twitter's top 10 UK hashtags for a period.
As well as being punctual and polite, Priyanka was sociable and a much valued member of the team during her time at UNA-UK."
