Angelique da Silva
Originally from sunny South Africa, now based in Bristol for the past 11 years. She has worked in radio, print and excitedly moved into the ever rapidly evolving digital world 10 years ago. When she isn’t on the phone with clients and running the day to day tasks of Noisy Digital she is mum to a 12 year old and a bearded dragon! Her passions are hiking, yoga, cycling and mental health studies.
I write to support myself as I live within and explore various countries. Being able to communicate my experience drives me to pursue and improve my writing ability. I continue to read books by Bruce Chatwin, each time being left with the great feeling of “I want to do that.” Alongside my reading and writing, I am occupied with language learning as well as listening to and sharing music.
I am a Creative Writing graduate with copywriting and editing skills, and I have lived in the beautiful city of Bath for the last 3 years, where I love exploring! Exploring a city is drastically fun if there’s coffee and cake involved. I love to read and write children’s fiction; I am currently writing my first young adult novel. Other than writing, I like running, eating a lot and baking sweet treats. And of course, watch (binge) the occasional TV show on Netflix.
I’m a third year student from Oxford studying Creative Professional Writing and Screenwriting at the University of Worcester, and am currently working on writing my first book along with a few television series script. I’m also an avid baker and reader, very passionate about music, and a big fan of animals, especially cats. I love to write, and have been writing short stories and poetry for several years.

Having graduated with a BSc in Psychology, I am working for a counselling and psychotherapy charity in which I am able to employ my passion for mental health. In my spare time, I enjoy writing, taking long walks along the beach, collecting cat paraphernalia, and beating my boyfriend at mini golf.
I recently graduated with a MSc in Climate Change, Development & Policy from the University of Sussex and am particularly interested climate, sustainability, and increasing awareness of environmental issues. I have a passion for sports and music, which I spend much of my spare time indulging in. When I’m not on the tennis court, you can find me in the kitchen trying out new recipes and setting the fire alarm off.
I am a freelance audience insight researcher, writer and dog walker. I’m currently living from my laptop around Europe, often tucked away in coffee shops and trying my best to learn new languages. When I’m not working I like to read, swim, watch videos of Michelle Obama’s speeches and listen to political podcasts.
I love travelling the world, which makes content writing a fantastic job. As long as I have an internet connection, I’m able to work. International politics is another passion of mine, and I seek to go down that career path in the future. I have been working with Noisy Digital for over a year, where I’ve been able to enhance my writing skills, and learn about a wide variety of topics (through research).
As a media writing graduate and ghostwriter for me, writing is a creative outlet. With an assortment of experience writing blog articles, TV scripts, academic prose, business landing pages, product descriptions, and so forth, the minimalism of UX writing, in particular, has recently piqued my interest. Other than composing content, I relish various activities, such as indulging in artistic hobbies or outdoor adventures with my family. From attempting to paint to upcycling mid-century modern furniture. To redesigning my garden, muddy treks through the woods and trips to new places – preferably near the beach!
I’m a graduate of the University of Worcester with a BA Hons in Creative & Professional Writing and Screenwriting. I have enjoyed every avenue of writing that I have pursued, from picture books, pilots, feature scripts to plays. I am currently working on a comedy series. Outside of writing, I am addicted to Netflix, a leader at my local Brownie pack, and I have two little dogs who take up a lot of my time.
After graduating from The University of Manchester with a degree in Philosophy and Politics, I have enjoyed using my research and writing skills in multiple direct marketing, digital marketing and copywriting roles. Outside of work, I enjoy dancing, music and spending time with animals.
Now working in Gibraltar but a proud native of northeast England, I like to think I’ve worked my way around lots of exciting areas of writing. After graduating with a First Class Hons degree in Media Production many moons ago, I then tackled a post-graduate course in journalism, wrestled with scriptwriting, grappled with creating fiction, and finally settled on a role in copywriting — a job I’ve done for more than five years that has helped me learn about a lot of random topics, very quickly…
I’m a big reader (shock), love dogs and hate exercise — but, of course, I do it anyway. Being near a beach, no matter where, is one of my favourite things and I’d love to look at a book one day and see my name on the spine.
I love investigating the world around me, figuring out how everything works and creating theories. I want to build fictional worlds on the scale of Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings and use them to tell gripping stories and explore morality. One day I want people to look back at my work as works of fantasy injected with the issues we face in society today.
Born and bred in South Africa, I enjoy being outdoors, but am not overly fond of the beach. I hold a Diploma in International Trade Management, as well as Certificates in Novel Writing, and Proofreading & Copy-Editing. I am currently employed as a Marketing Assistant with one of South Africa’s biggest ostrich leather suppliers, which allows me to utilise my skills and unleash my creative side on occasion. In my spare time I am a passionate blogger, voracious reader, hopeless romantic, wannasee-more-places-traveler, and lover of all things peanut butter, coffee and cheesecake.
