“Writing for Give a Grad a Go’s blog gave me the chance to explore a topic I’m interested in and gain knowledge which I was able to apply to my own student lifestyle.
Writing to a set criteria including a word count and key words was good practice for my prospective career in journalism, while the freedom of style and structure allowed made the task a creative and enjoyable one.
I’d highly recommend writing for the blog: not only is it a great opportunity to showcase your work and securing a byline on an official media platform, but it’s fulfilling to know that your advice might help another student made a positive change to their everyday routine.“
