My name is Megan Savage and I’m the Programme Support and Co-ordinator at TICE. I joined the team in the summer of 2015.
I am an ex-TICE student, previously participating in the music strand of the programme from 2010-2012. I returned a few years later, working alongside the mentors as part of the work experience team whilst completing my A-Levels at Burnside Business and Enterprise College. Now I am currently studying Contemporary and Popular Music at Newcastle University alongside my role at TICE, learning particularly about performance and the social/political aspects of the music industry. Photography/film-making, blogging, reading and TV show binge-watching are also on the list of joys in my life. Oh, and drinking tea. Lots of tea.
At TICE, I’m incredibly passionate about giving students the opportunity that I was given when I was 13. Without a doubt, I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t experience the creative and digital industries first-hand. The skills I gained both vocally and personally have been vital in my achievements over the past few years and I find it equally gratifying to help others discover their ability to succeed.
