Dancing Straight into my Dream Job
First look at this title and you’re probably wondering what I’m talking about. Let’s jump to it.
My name is Dylan Evans, I’m 19 years old and I’m Jump Nation’s Digital Marketing and Social Media Apprentice.
Jump Nation is the largest indoor trampoline arena in Europe, featuring wall to wall trampolines as far as the eye can see, all connected together to form one huge bounce park.
Social media as a job, you say? After studying Computer Programming for a year, I realised that it was not for me, something was missing and I couldn’t bear the thought of doing this for the rest of my life, knowing that I wasn’t happy in my job. By all means it was a very interesting subject and every piece of code that I wrote made me feel more and more clever, but it was all the same.
I wanted more creativity, I wanted to be different from the others – this is how I’ve been since I was younger. I wanted to stand out, be able to create my own content and be original and creative. Social media was the perfect way to do this!
Here’s where the dancing comes in Social media, for me, isn’t just a platform where I can talk to my friends and socialise. It is a canvas for me to create my own art and really share my passions with people.
