REDTORCH Recruit: Mikayla Billin


Throughout my studies I completed part time jobs as a Lead Counsellor at YMCA Day Camp Manitou and a Front-End Developer at Royal Holloway Students’ Union. Following graduating, I was a Social Media Intern at Field Day Productions and freelanced a website design and development project for an eCommerce company. Most of my digital experience comes from various university projects I have developed, including a digital storytelling piece focusing on the largest horse rescue mission in United States history.


After finishing high school in Minnesota, USA, I came to Royal Holloway, University of London to study BSc Digital Media Communications. I graduated with a First Class Honours degree and was awarded the Harrison Prize amongst others for outstanding achievement and highest marks in my studies.

If I could only watch one sport for the rest of my life it would be…

Happiest when…

I’m outside and doing something active with family and friends ??
