Hello, my name is Adele Kathryn Jones. I’m a 19-year old journalism student at the University of Westminster in North London.
I’m originally from Hartlepool, a small town in the North East of England, sort of near Newcastle.
Moving to London was always the plan for me, ever since I decided I wanted to be a writer. I could never decide what I wanted to ‘be when I grew up’, but writing was always something I was really passionate about, whether it was writing a creative piece or factual news story. I always loved the feeling of people reading my words and understanding my thoughts. I considered doing English at university, but during college, I started to find the examinations quite difficult, and eventually decided that a course with no exams, but the ability to write and rework pieces in my own time was the way I needed to go.
Moving to London has been one of the hardest things I have done in my life and I’ve now realised that however unsuccessful I’m going to be in the journalism profession, the north is where I belong.
In my spare time I generally work on my personal blog that I host on Tumblr. This blog is mainly a place for me to organise my thoughts and host some of my more creative writing. I find blogging there is more like a diary for me, whereas this WordPress site is somewhere for me to host my university work and be more journalistic.
Thank-you for taking the time to read this blog, and if you could, follow me on Twitter and get to know me a little better.
