Born and raised in Aberdeen, Myles Edwards was passionate about the media from a young age and now has over seven years of experience in journalism and PR in the UK and Kenya.
Myles was educated at Aberdeen Grammar School and graduated from Edinburgh Napier University with a BA (Hons) Journalism in 2010.
As a freelance journalist Myles has interviewed some of the biggest names in the world of sport including World and Olympic Champion Mo Farah, former World record holder and Commonwealth champion Dave Moorcroft, the inspirational 'Limbless Mountaineer' Jamie Andrew, current men's marathon world record holder and London Marathon champion Wilson Kipsang and double London Marathon champion Mary Keitany.
When Myles isn't writing articles he can be found training as a middle distance runner and has aspirations of representing Scotland at a major competition in the next few years. In 2011, he was given the opportunity to live and train in Kenya alongside some of the world's top athletes. Two years later Myles visited the Pavilion Village children's home in Karatina and it was to be an experience that would change the direction of his life.
Massively humbled and inspired by the positivity of the 22 children despite their poor conditions it led Myles to set a number of fundraising initiatives and in 2014, the Gathimba Edwards Foundation was formed to create opportunities and provide support for disadvantaged children in Kenya.
Alongside his work at Granite PR Myles now works for the foundation full-time thanks to support from Aberdeen based IT company, prosource.it. After graduating, Myles set up his own media company working on a variety of projects in PR, video production, print and design. You may have also spotted him 'saving his pennies' in a recent Bank of Scotland TV commercial.
