Hey! I’m Emma!
Whether I’m embarking on epic quests in RPGs like Baldur’s Gate 3, indulging in the cosy charm of Disney Dreamlight Valley, or facing the spine-chilling challenges of Dead by Daylight, my love for navigating diverse virtual worlds knows no bounds. Beyond gaming, my artistic pursuits extend to digital art with Procreate, and I often enjoy a good fantasy novel like A Court of Thorns and Roses. Conventions and cosplay serve as avenues for my creative expression, complemented by the attainment of a Level 3 BTEC in Media Hair and Makeup. My passion for learning extends to language acquisition, holding a Higher National Certificate in Japanese with plans for further exploration.
During my three years at GAME, I’ve gained expertise in online safety and children’s gaming experiences, positioning me as a knowledgeable resource for navigating challenges and opportunities in the gaming environment. I collaborated with Belong Gaming Arenas to plan and execute parties and special events for children, strengthening my commitment and enthusiasm for the gaming industry.
My academic foundation in Forensic Psychology encompasses comprehensive studies in Social and Developmental Psychology, Individual Differences, Clinical Psychology, Brain Treatments and Behaviours, Mental Health, and more. My dissertation focused on the effects of moral foundations and actively open-minded thinking on video game choices, reflecting my dedication to understanding the connections between virtual experiences and real-world values.
During my time in University, I demonstrated leadership by successfully managing both the Psychology Society and the Disney Society. In these roles, I directed volunteer initiatives for prominent charities, organised career and research talks featuring industry professionals, and orchestrated social events fostering a sense of community among like-minded individuals. Creating safe spaces for shared interests is a principle I aim to continue at MindJam, providing a platform for individuals to connect, share, and find support.
My experience as a tour guide at the University Library allowed me to refine my mentoring skills, assisting numerous individuals with university applications, job applications, form completion, and academic assignments. Particularly, my commitment to providing tailored support to those with Special Educational Needs (SEN) showcased my adaptability and dedication to meeting diverse learning requirements.
I am enhanced DBS checked and have fully up to date training in safeguarding, online safety, data protection, and mental health.
As I transition into a mentorship role at MindJam, I bring with me a wealth of experience, a commitment to individualised support, and a passion for fostering a secure and supportive environment for children and young adults. I am eager to contribute positively to the growth and well-being of those under my guidance.
