Social media junkie Jessica Hodkinson has blogged her way on to a plane to Mumbai.

The 26-year-old, who lives in Leeds city centre, has been chosen by phone manufacturer Nokia to fly to India and spread her social media wings with tweets, blog posts and updates live from Mumbai’s Social Media Week (SMW) event.

A witty online post from PR and marketing executive Jessica persuaded the judges of a national competition to select her to spend seven days in Mumbai and use a Nokia Lumia 1020 to report on SMW.

She said: “It’s just a really good opportunity career-wise but I do get told I’m constantly on my phone.”

A spokesperson for Nokia said Jessica was chosen for her passion for social media.
