Thanks for stopping by.
My name is Katherine Purvis and I am a trainee journalist. I am currently studying for an MA in Multimedia Journalism at the University of Kent. This WordPress site serves an online portfolio for all my work; print, video, radio and online samples. (Bear with me while I upload everything!)
I am also really, really going to try and keep up with this blog and write posts regularly. I’ve had blogs in the past but I’ve always stopped writing after a couple of posts, but I think it’s really important that I write about things that interest me personally, rather than always writing essays and articles for university.
I’m not going to set myself limits on what I write or share here – this blog isn’t going to be just about journalism. I’ll be writing about International Development and Global Health (areas I hope to be writing on professionally in the future) and whatever I get up to with the Stop AIDS Campaign. I’ll also probably be posting things about travelling, photography, music and film, as well as whatever might come up in my day-to-day life – either at university or in my quest to find a Real Job in journalism.
I’ll also be blogging about my upcoming trip to Tanzania, where I’m going to be volunteering in Upendo Children’s Home and helping out with their blog and social media stuff.
Anyway, I hope you like what you read and that you’ll come back regularly for a catch-up!
