Journalism and university successes
Hello readers. Yes, I am still here! I normally apologise when I have been away from the keys for too long, but not this time – I am not apologising for how much fun I have been having at university. Warwick is absolutely fantastic, but I am not going to tell you all about it here. Suffice to say, I am having a good time!
Anyway, I have been writing a lot – just elsewhere. I am now part of the Warwick Boar’s comment team, which just means I get to be opinionated and see my name in print every fortnight. There’s no feeling quite like it.
What’s more, my Prospect blog is up and running. The excitement I feel about this is indescribable. I write once a fortnight under the tag-line of ‘a student’s view of current events and disability rights’ which gives me all the scope I could possibly wish for. My first piece was published on Wednesday and caused quite a stir on Twitter – who knew that declaring one’s wish to work could be controversial? Nevertheless, the response was overwhelmingly positive and I am so grateful to Prospect for the opportunity to get my voice heard on this issue, and for letting me write in general.
And so, that’s what I have been up to. Now that things are settling down (I am slowly recovering from Freshers’), I am catching up with the news and reading the paper more regularly. So, despite the fact that I have four 2,500 word essays due in the course of the next month, I am hoping to be blogging a little more often. Until then, check out Prospect!
