Millie Smith – Founder & Editor In Chief
Millie is a current English Literature Undergraduate at the University of Reading. With a passion for journalism, Millie wanted to create a dedicated space for young people and students to showcase their work and talents. The Collective Magazine was founded with this vision in mind, and she hopes that others will be excited to work with her in making it come to life. As well as studying English, she is also passionate about musical theatre and has performed as a hobby from a young age. In her free time, she can be found binging Netflix or playing The Sims.
Rhianna Hurren-Myers – Deputy Editor
Rhianna is a first-class Sociology, Journalism and Media 2020 grad, and will be beginning her MA at Cardiff University in Public Relations & Communications Management this October. Having stumbled across Millie’s magazine vision on a Facebook page (it was fate!), she hopes TCM will provide a much-needed creative outlook for students to grow their portfolio. Alongside a borderline unhealthy obsession with houseplants, there is nothing Rhianna loves more than curling up in the sunshine with a good book.
