Aleesha Badkar

Social & SEO Writer

Hey! Earlier this year I started as social & SEO writer at GoodtoKnow, where I love writing about food, families and famous people.

 

In the office you’ll find me sipping on coffee and herbal teas, nagging everyone to drink water and chatting about all things beauty (when I’m not typing away of course).

 

And I never get tired of a cool, new foodie launch. Pomegranate gin and salted caramel mince pies? Yes please.

 

After completing my MA in Magazine Journalism at City, University of London last summer (2017), I interned at a number of national titles including Women’s Health, Stylist and Harper’s Bazaar.

 

Following a stint with Stylist’s beauty desk, I freelanced for Women’s Health digital team, where I wrote features and new pieces on health, beauty, fitness, wellbeing and food.

 

Before going into Journalism, I worked as a Literacy, English and Spanish teaching assistant in a grammar school back in my home town of Marlow, Buckinghamshire.

 

In 2014, I graduated from University of Leeds with a BA in English and Spanish. During my degree I spent nine months living and studying in Madrid, where I spent my time trying to tackle Marketing in Spanish, learning how to make tortilla Española, and sitting in plazas drinking red wine with Fanta Limón.

 

In my free time I enjoy reading crime thriller series. I also like keeping up with books in the charts, so that I know what my friends are talking about over dinner and can contribute a line or two in the desk chats too.

 

I’m also a bit of a Netflix addict, so any new releases on there are swiftly binge-watched on the weekends.

 

Oh and I’ve happily swapped my Friday evenings from wine bottles in a bar to milk bottles with my adorable, squidgy four-month-old godson.
