Another day, another new employee introduce you to. Say hello to Alia, our newest Paid Social Executive. We chatted away to the film and TV lover who shared her star-studded dinner party lineup and passion for all things creative.
The Work Stuff 📈
Tell us about your background. What led you to DMT?
I love being creative, and I’ve worked in social media, design and content creation for a few years now. My previous role was in marketing with this year’s The Apprentice winner & it was a really fun opportunity, but paid advertising was something I really wanted to learn more about & DMT felt like the perfect place to do that.
What is something unique that you think you bring to the role?
I’d say I have a great eye for detail. I also really enjoy analysing, which is pretty key.
What’s something you want your colleagues to know about you?
A fun fact, I guess - I used to be really into acting and trained with NYT when I was 18… then did a 180 and went into marketing
The Personal Stuff 👨💻
What three words would your friends use to describe you?
Kind, patient & ambitious ✨
What’s your favourite cultural moment of this past year and why?
I’m completely blanking on what happened this year.
What’s your hobby or passion project outside of work?
I love all types of art, so writing, design, and spoken word are all things I’m either working on or planning to work on.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Reality TV, but only like 3 shows.
What causes are you supportive of, and why?
All humanitarian causes, honestly - there are too many to list, but Yemen, Palestine & Syria especially.
The Fun Stuff 🥂
Give us your best Manchester bar recommendation.
I love Warehouse on Ducie street. It’s a very chill, casual, lounge/bar restaurant vibe - they also have Gooey doughnuts and cookies, so it’s worth going just for them 🍪
If you were a social media platform, which one would you be and why?
It’d have to be Instagram. Purely because of stories and your profile feed. I’m a perfectionist with random things, and my Instagram feed is one of them.
Who would be your five dream dinner party guests, dead or alive?
Hmmmmm, Beyonce, Viola Davis, Malcom X, Mo Gawdat & Chunkz.
Quickfire Qs 🎯
What are you watching?
A new Netflix movie every night at this point. I love Spanish films and series, too - Money Heist is really good, and The Invisible Guest film - which is no longer on Netflix :( - is a strong 12/10.
What are you reading?
What are you listening to?
Beyonce/The Carters, Rihanna, Asiahn, Iyla and Syd.
Who are you ignoring?
Who are you following?
People that either make me laugh, inspire me, or are wholesome.
