Meet the Team - Bella
Bella is originally from New Zealand and joined Sunshine in October as an Account Manager. She is working across brands such as Edinburgh Leisure, Your Housing Group and Curious Frank. She previously worked in London before moving to Scotland to enjoy her family’s former homeland.
Q. What’s your favourite thing about working at Sunshine Communications?
I love how collaborative everything is here. Bigger agencies get caught up in so much hierarchy and paperwork which just doesn’t exist at Sunshine. Everyone is welcome to be part of the process and everything moves so quickly, work just gets done and it’s so refreshing.
Q. What's your favourite quote?
"Knowledge is no weight to carry."
Said to me by a family friend who had no doubt taken it from someone else. I like this because it informs the way I try to look at the world. Always be interested, always be curious and keep on learning because it doesn’t cost you anything. I think the way a person approaches the things they don’t know says a lot about them.
Q. What’s your favourite Social Media platform?
I love them all for different reasons! I use Facebook to keep up with my family who are all over the world and reassure my Mum that I’m alive. Instagram is for my friends. Twitter is so I can watch J.K Rowling take people down in 280 characters and Snapchat is the only thing my Dad likes to use so I talk to him there.
Q. When I’m not working you'll find me at….
At choir, underwater or at the pub. I love to dive and recently did my drysuit diver course so I can get under the chilly Scottish waters. I also joined a choir here and I’m generally trying to be a productive adult so I don’t spend all my time in the pub (just the odd Thirsty Thursday).
Q. Where would be at the top of your bucketlist?
The Galapagos. It’s a dream diving destination to see Hammerhead Sharks, Whale Sharks and Mola Mola. It’s literally the trip of a lifetime and costs an arm and a leg, so around that I plan to visit friends in Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Sweden. Wherever something fun is happening I’m game to go.
