I started this blog one morning on Sunday 10th May for the purpose of wanting to share my life experiences through my passion for writing. The feedback and positive support from doing what I enjoy is extremely empowering from my readers and I am grateful for the support given. I wanted to do a Q+A get to know me style post which some people who may not know me want to read in order to be familiar with the face behind the screen. Below are some Q+A questions
Who do you live with? I live with my Mum, Dad, twin brother and older sister, but during term time I live in Cardiff as a full-time university student. In September I’ll be moving into a shared student house with my four friends which I am extremely looking forward to!
What are your career goals? I’m currently in my first year of uni, studying English and Education studies as I aspire to be an English Secondary school teacher. I believe I have the passion and capability of this rewarding career, and I hope to inspire my students as much as some of the teachers who taught me during my time in education. Amongst this, I’d love to write my own book(s), fictional and non-fictional about my time in the education system.

What do you do in your spare time? Prior to lockdown, amongst being at uni full time and having a part-time job which I both love and hate, I would spend my time amongst my friends and visiting my family, shopping, going out clubbing, and one of my favourite things to do is go out to restaurants for food! During lockdown however, I watch a lot of youtube and netflix, I regularly read and write these blogs, and I try and do a workout routine daily.
Do you have any pets? I have a Jack Russell called Zeze who is scared of everything and loves my Mum
