Yes hello! And a huge welcome to my little section of the blogging world.
Just to introduce myself… my name is Emma and I am 21 years old! In July 2020, I graduated from Solent University with a First Class honours degree in Public Relations & Communication. I absolutely adored my degree and, despite the tough parts, would do it all over again if I could. I have learnt so much over the past three years and have grown a lot too in both my personal and professional life.
My blogging journey originally began way back in 2014 (over on Blogspot) where I was ‘ItsOnlyEm’. I had no specific direction for the blog, I just knew that I loved to write and wanted a hobby that wasn’t watching TV! If you want to read my full blogging story, then click here for a post I wrote a while back.
Since then, my passion for writing has grown and whilst at University I channeled a lot of my spare time back into my blog. During my third and final year, I was fortunate enough to be named the runner up in PR Place’s ‘UK’s Best PR Student Blogger 2020’ competition. This was an incredible experience and definitely improved my professional network and provided many opportunities!
So, what can you expect from this blog? A little sprinkle of everything! I aim to provide all those juicy details that everyone forgets to tell you in your early twenties. From career advice to blogging tips, PR news and even what I’m currently reading.
A chance to learn from my experiences, failures and everything in between! A place for everything I wish I had known, lovingly written by yours truly.
