Staff of the week!
Best performing Staff Member
Each week, we choose someone to be the best performing staff of the week, for their work in a specific department. This week, we have selected Jose for their amazing work in Media! Here's what he had to say:
Hiya, I'm Jose! I'm a media reporter here, and it's a privilege to work for UpBeat! I'm 16 years old and I live in London, and in my spare time I like to play rugby (pre-lockdown of course) and hit a tennis ball at the courts. I was a media mentor previously and it was great fun working with everyone - I enjoyed it so much that I came back twice after! I'm always ready to take DMs, so if you need something, drop me one and I'll be more than happy to help out! Have a great week ahead!
Meet your Administrator
Howdy, y’all! I’m your Murican pal, Fran! At least most people call me Fran. My full name is Francesca (Fran-chess-kuh), but people have trouble pronouncing that.
Where do I even start? I originally joined UpBeat in 2018 as a Media Manager after the first radio I was at closed down (which I was also a Media Manager at). Then I left for a bit, as school was just a lot for me to handle at the time. Making new friends whilst having social anxiety—you guys know the gist. Anyways, I joined back in 2019 starting as a guest reporter, then pretty rapidly working up the ranks. Little miss Amy kept harassing me about being an editor, then a manager, blah, blah, blah. And, well, I guess I did a good enough job for Jack to say “Hey, why don’t we give this sad old hag a promotion?!”, and now I’m here as Admin Fran, also known as Grancesca and Captain Crunch.
If I’m being honest, it was a much more exciting ride than that, but chat to me to hear more! I’m always talking in text channels and voice chats, so there’s no way you’ll miss me. Maybe one day you’ll get to experience the same adventure as I have.
The only piece of advice I have that would really set you above and beyond is to just not have an attitude. A majority of you don’t, but for those few souls I have to talk to weekly, I’m comin’ for ya next week with my belt for your beating! I am a white belt in karate, don’t mess with me!
Here's what Jack had to say about her:
I’m pretty sure everyone already knows but Fran is one of the most amazing admins UpBeat has ever had! She always puts the community first and constantly thinks of new and creative ideas. She has the most fans without a doubt, and I can’t wait to see how she continues to help UpBeat grow and evolve in the future! 💖
