Writing is something that has always intrigued me. From a young age, I would stick pieces of paper together and try and create my very own books. They had scribbled drawings and one sentence on each page, but I was always so proud of them. I would even take them to school for show and tell!

My passion for writing progressed as I grew up, and it continued to be a hobby of mine. At the start of my writing degree, I had no idea where it was going to take me after university, but all I knew was I was happy that I was doing something I enjoyed. After an opportunity arose in my final year at university to do freelance work, suddenly the importance of my degree clicked in place. I was writing weekly blogs for a software company and a clothing company. I also picked up work doing social media marketing for several clients. This allowed me to explore writing for different kinds of businesses. Now I have set up a social media marketing agency, and I look forward to continuing to grow my own business and to strengthen my writing after graduation.

But no matter how busy my life gets I will always work towards my lifelong dream of having my very own book published!
