WHO IS THE WRITER?
Alright, take 3
My name is Daniella.
I am a History graduate. Wow, that felt a little weird to type. I have a degree now and it feels pretty cool! Update: I am now embarking on a new journey by studying a masters in International Journalism. Let’s just say, I’m learning a whole lot of stuff about journalism that I didn’t know previously.
I created this blog around 2014. At the time, I didn’t really know exactly what I wanted to do with it. All I knew was that I wanted to be a journalist and it was time for me to generate some sort of internet presence. It was time for me to show the world what I have to offer – what is on my mind. That’s what employers told me and that’s what my teachers told me. Although, I had all these ideas at the time, but I really didn’t know how to execute them. So, instead I took time away from this to figure things out. Three years to be exact. Early 2017 was when I got my groove back! I was finally in tune with what I wanted to write about and ready to dedicate my time into doing so.
Why did I want to become a journalist? When did it hit me?
Well, I guess I’ve always known. I’ve known since I was young that this is what I was born to do. It sounds cliché, but I didn’t have a plan B and I still don’t. I was always really good at writing. I used to read A LOT of fiction and non-fiction, which definitely helped. When I was younger, I used to really admire black female reporters like Isha Sesay and still do. I wanted that to be me one day. When secondary school came, that’s when I really started to make my dream my reality. I started up my school paper and wrote a number of articles for a local newspaper during my time in sixth form. I hope to bring something different with INTHEWRITERSMIND. I hope it grows into a respected forum for discussion and new insights.
I also listen to A LOT of underappreciated music. I hope to keep bringing that to the forefront, because there is a lot of talent out there that needs to be heard. Okay, so I guess it’s time to wrap this up a bit haha. Well, let’s just say I’m pretty stoked to introduce some of these artists to you. You can find some of them on INTHERWRITERSMIND’s SoundCloud and Spotify account.
Disclaimer: as much as I love music, this website isn’t just about music. I’m a history grad, so expect to see some interesting historical findings and general thoughts coming your way! It’s important that as young people that we stay aware and when the time is right determine our own political standing. Finally, you’re probably thinking “what on earth is a Stream of Consciousness?”. Well, to put it simply it’s all the weird things I think about and interesting topics I discuss with my friends. Stay tuned for cool content!
