Meet Cyann, Tank Storage Magazine Journalist

What does sustainability mean to you and how important is it?

Sustainability has always been a central part of my lifestyle and interests. From being vegan, to finding ways to make my daily routines better for the environment, I believe making small changes is the way forward to a more sustainable future. The fact that reacting to climate change is urgent and becoming more evident in our industry, is both exciting and rewarding. And, something I see myself being part of for many years.

What was your first week like?

Mad, but in a good way. I am used to fast paced environments and being organised – so coming into the office and applying this has really helped me settle in. Everyone is amazing and the office could not seem friendlier.

What are you most looking forward to whilst working with us?

Learning! This is my first venture away from full-time education, but I am super excited to continue learning about the oil, gas, and petrochemical sector as it grows. Also, meeting new people is always a perk of being a journalist and luckily something I love, so this will be amazing both within the office and at events attended.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, you will typically find me in the gym, or snuggled in the corner of a coffee shop with a book – opposites, I know. At weekends, for most of the year, I’m following the latest news in Formula One, and following it along on the screen too. I am also really into climbing and will soon be starting my NCTJ qualification to become a qualified journalist.

Are you excited to be on-site? What are you looking forward to when we go?

Being on-site is amazing particularly post-COVID – I have spent so much time sat doing work on my own, in an isolated, and silent environment and the thought of this being the daily routine going into the working work was not a nice prospect. I am very fortunate this is not the case, yet my job remains flexible. This also links into what I am looking forward to moving forwards with the team. Getting to travel to major and key events together will establish great connections for me as a journalist in the sector and provide a great foundation for learning about news relevant to the magazine from around the world. Also, interviewing some amazing CEOs and innovators is a massive life achievement!

What is a fun fact about yourself?

I have participated in all three of The Ten Tors Challenges and completed the 35 mile and 45-mile routes. Ten Tors is a challenge attempted by approximately 2,400 teenagers in 400 teams of six. Depending on age, each team navigates a route of 35, 45, or 55 miles over the Northern half of Dartmoor in Devon. This includes encountering difficult terrains, carrying 10kg+, and navigating without any technology permitted. The event ran by the army, was life changing for me – completing the 35- and 45-mile routes was a great achievement! I also attempted the 55-mile route but managed to pop both my kneecaps out and tear a hamstring (and hence, was understandably taken to hospital).
