Journalism graduate becomes cheerleading magazine Editor-in-Chief
Last year Charlotte Corner endeavoured to set up the niche publication after she came up with the idea for her final year University coursework. Since then the 22-year-old has been working hard to create the magazine and its website www.thecheerleader.co.uk.
"It has been like a rollercoaster ride since I graduated from Leeds Met," said Charlotte. "But it's been a brilliant experience and I'm thrilled and proud that The Cheerleader is now available to buy via our website and at cheerleading competitions."
The quarterly paid-for publication includes features on UK cheerleading teams, cheerleading activities and tips, and a round-up of news within the cheerleading community.
Charlotte said the idea to create the magazine escalated last summer following a dream.
"For one of my last projects in my final year at Leeds Met I had to make a magazine," she said. "My partner is a cheerleading coach and the idea was formed after I had a dream that I made a cheerleading magazine.
"While I've never been a cheerleader myself, it didn't take me long to realise that not only is the sport extremely popular in the UK, but there was a huge gap in the market for a niche publication dedicated to the cheerleading community.
"Since our magazine launched, a further two UK cheer mags have appeared, so it's now my priority that The Cheerleader takes the market lead, offering the best content for the cheer community at a fair price."
