30 Seconds To Greatness: Yasmin Evans

As part of our #LifeHacks initiative in partnership with the University of Salford, NME is asking prominent figures from the creative industries to give an insight into their career journeys.

The ’30 Seconds To Greatness’ video series will feature a bitesize piece of advice, or a lesson learned, from people who have made it to the top in music, fashion, film, tech, and other creative industries.

This time, our words of wisdom come from Yasmin Evans, who studied radio at University of Salford and now works as a presenter for BBC Radio 1Xtra and CBBC, among other outlets. Her advice emphasises the importance of taking time out from pursuing your career goals so you can regroup.

As part of our #LifeHacks initiative, NME and the University of Salford are also creating a year-long programme of events. The aim is to help inspire young creatives on how to get ahead in the world of work.
