I chose to go to university for English, and it wasn’t for a lack of trying to find something else to study. I spent my first two years just taking random electives. I considered forensic anthropology, psychology, journalism… But nothing fit, so I decided to return to English. I ended up graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Humanities at the age of 19, and kind of wish that I had studied something I hadn’t already spent the majority of my teenage years self-learning.
My portfolio, at best, is sketchy. It comes with a lot of gaps, loose papers and dog-eared pages. I did some ghostwriting for a long time, and I’ve written for a variety of publications, including my university’s student newspaper, but I wanted something more. Ghostwriting could sometimes be good money, but I never wrote anything I would want to put under my own name. I wouldn’t be ghostwriting if that was the case. Seeing my name in bylines was cool, but they were mostly low-paying or free gigs. All these experiences definitely brought me to where I am today, and for that I am grateful, but I am glad that’s all in the past and that I’m in a new phase of life!
