I remember when I first began blogging and after I'd committed to writing a few posts every week, it would feel strange to go a week without posting. But here it is, the annoying sorry for not posting in months (years?) post. Life has been busy and the only reason I am typing this is…Read more A Hello Back
Last Saturday, I was happy to take part in something called London's Community Impact Project which is a student initiative to tackle issues like homelessness. Students from universities across Central London came together to hold an event for the homeless. The event was held above Temple Station in Central London, which aimed to provide key…Read more London Community Impact Project
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to film a panel of graduates who came to visit my university. Although my primary aim was to film, it turned out to be an incredibly motivational event for myself as well. Sometimes students do not realise the value of such events but they can really help…Read more Motivational Graduates

The fight is being taken to them through the use of a marvellous tool. Yes, that is actually chalk on my kitchen floor but it is a special, magical…Read more The Ants Are On The Retreat! I Hope..
