A New Chapter



The past few years have been a heck of a journey... there were many ups and downs, left and rights and some parts were completely all over the place.

The main change was that I said goodbye to my college life and began university. Honestly, I'd probably thought about quitting university 100 times, but I pulled through all of the struggle and have now officially graduated, woop! I achieved Upper Second Class Honours in Journalism and Media from De Montfort University. And you know what, I am actually so incredibly proud of myself. Considering I never thought I'd see the day where I actually graduated... I actually did it! I also got to see my parents all super proud of me and that made me very happy. I spent an afternoon celebrating with some friends and family and it was all happy days!



Rewinding back to two weeks before graduation, I attended possibly my tenth job interview since finishing university. At the time, the process just felt never ending. I felt like I'd had far too email conversations with recruiters. I had prepared for so many telephone interviews. I had sent my CV and cover letter off to every single job opportunity that I could find. I thought that the interview went well, as all of them seemed to. However, this one was different because I actually got offered the job!

So yes. I've. Got. An. Actual. Graduate. Job. I now work as a PR and Social Media Assistant, which is so surreal since it is basically the job that I've been dreaming about ever since I figured out what I actually wanted to do with my life after university.

I know the past few years have been a rocky road leading up to where I am now but the past few weeks have made me realise how important it is to treasure all of these moments. Good or bad. Take it as a learning curve. An opportunity to grow. A chance to become better. Your past only makes you improve and enhance yourself!

I never realised that the past few years have involved working on myself as much as it did. I've learnt so much about who I am, about other people and about the world out there. People are going to be nasty and horrible. People are going to put you down. People are going to try and stop you from becoming better.

My advice: Prove them all wrong. Don't let them stop you. Be better. And I know probably say this far too much but... you do you, boo!

Take this opportunity to reflect and look forward. A new chapter awaits.....
