Freelance Writer

United Kingdom

I am an aspiring freelance writer and editor who is enthusiastic about social politics, mental health, art, and music. My experience includes working for several online and print magazines, and I want to expand my work further. Interested in expanding my knowledge of the field and working with an innovative, exciting company.

Journalism, to me, is about being authentic and using your voice, because some people don't get to do that. In my writing, I aim to create thought-provoking and informative content, content I would have appreciated reading ten years ago. I aim to be the voice of the voiceless.
