Hello Uplift readers!
As a member of the all new and improved Uplift site, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you all :) My name is Yasmin, I’m a 22 year old Londoner currently in my third year of an English with Creative Writing degree at the University College Falmouth, a beautiful small seaside town where I can mostly be found drinking tea on the beach, or, more currently, weighed down by books in the library.
I’m a huuuuge fan of Sylvia Plath (so much so that I’m writing my dissertation on her!) and like to think of myself as someone who reads Shakespeare for fun… but I must admit to being a total magazine whore in my spare time. I love reading everything from small, scrappy zines, to big, thick, arty glossies, and my ultimate aspiration is to get into the world of women’s publication, with some sort of editorial position. I often feel that I may be a little like an English version of Ugly Betty, in that we’re both struggling journos with pro feminist agendas and shaggy hair cuts. I also wear glasses and have a penchant for prints but I’m sure that’s neither here nor there…
Hollywood looky-likeys aside, I am so much looking forward to writing for you all, hopefully together we can Uplift the lives of women everywhere!
