Welcome to the third installment of my ‘graduate’ series. It’s been exactly one year since my graduation and now almost four years since I filled my parents’ car with boxes and moved to London to start university. This is a little of my personal experience and why I think my Journalism degree at Westminster was worth… Read More A year ago I graduated & why my degree was worth it
One year ago today I posted ‘A year today I will be a graduate’. Yesterday I graduated from Westminster with a 2:1 in BA (Hons) Journalism degree, making me one of the best journalism graduates in London according the The Guardian table this year! This time last year the thought of graduating filled me with… Read More I am a graduate!
Whilst scrolling through mediargh this afternoon in my ongoing job search I came across a brilliant article about media graduates taking steps to make themselves marketable individuals here.

I particularly liked their… Read More Video Idea
(For uni) We were asked to find a website that we haven’t looked at before and make a short analysis of how the site works. I have only just discovered Kenzo as a design brand, and being a good student I accidentally found myself on the Kenzo website when I should have been listening to… Read More Kenzine Blog analysis
