BA Journalism Graduation – London Metropolitan University, Class of 2014

I guess everyone will reach that stage in their life when they realise their whole world is about to change. Whether it is because they fall in love, or start a family, get a new job, or accomplish something great. This happened to me – well for me it was a great accomplishment. Astonishingly, after near about 16 consecutive years of studying, I finally finished and graduated last Tuesday 29th July 2014. It’s a bit different here in the U.K – the whole graduation stuff. See, in most places in the world you graduate during high school/secondary school. Whereas here… View Post

Alcohol Calorie Counting – Feature

(This is an article that was written for my Creating Packages module. It was written for a food magazine, that me and a group had created known as – Eat Me Drink Me UK)  We love Friday nights at the EMDM office. It is literally the only factor that motivates us every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Just like most women, you’re likely to find us out in the city, drinking our sins away into the darkness of the night.

There are different examples over the… View Post
