Léa Nakache is a Senior Administrator and Communications Assistant for Better Than Well at the University of Birmingham.
Her career led her to produce work in a wide range of fields such as journalism and marketing.
After an International Relationships BA at Université Versailles St-Quentin in France, Léa worked for a year as a communication assistant in the French Highschool of Madrid (Lycée Français de Madrid). She then crossed the Channel all the way to the United Kingdom to complete her Mobile and Multiplatform MA at Birmingham City University.
While pursuing her studies, she worked for 8 months at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, producing a documentary about the Within+Without: Body Image and the Self exhibition. One of her videos is featured in the exhibition itself.
That led her to be featured in BCU’s Mobile and Multiplatform Journalism MA page (under “Course in Depth”).
She then worked as a Creative Graduate Assistant at Birmingham City University – School of Media.
Her professional endeavours led her to become a Social Trending Journalist at Reach Plc, covering local areas and writing features about people working in unusal jobs, such as professional drag artists, sugar babies and handmade stamp-makers.
As a Research Assistant at the University of Birmingham, she provided both live translation and transcription services from English to French, as part of the research project: ‘Floating (on) Platforms? European Left Parties and the Challenges of the Digital Revolution’. Her work focused on interviewing French MPs in the key months leading to the 2022 presidential election.
She has now come back to the Higher Education Sector, as a Senior Administrator and Communications Assistant at the University of Birmingham.
Better Than Well is a student-led community helping those in recovery from addiction by supporting each other through peer support. Léa’s role is to advertise and communicate about this program to help reach a wider audience of students in need. This role allows her to play her small part in raising Mental Health Awareness.
Léa is truly passionate about video-making, graphic design as well as photography work. She is interested in a wide range of subjects from subcultures through sustainability to fashion.
She likes to focus on telling peculiar, personal and meaningful human stories in a creative and aesthetic way. When she is not behind a camera, she enjoys designing, sewing and making her own clothes and costumes, as well as travelling.
She is always looking for new opportunities to produce creative media content, so feel free to contact her via Twitter, or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) !
