My Journey:
After graduating in 2020 with a degree in English Literature, I was unsure what career field I wanted to pursue. With the second lockdown, not many opportunities were available for graduates like me. After months of searching, I finally gained writing experience through an Editorial Writer Internship. This allowed me to publish articles online, gain experience working with SEO, and create a portfolio of my work. An achievement from this was having my article rank number 1 on Google.

Enrolling onto Universal Credit whilst being in lockdown was difficult as there were very few writing jobs available, and I did not have much experience. Confidence was at an all-time low, and my anxiety was through the roof. I was applying to different jobs every week and received many rejections. I had lost all hope until my work coach informed me of a copywriting position available at The Future Melting Pot, which turned my life around.
