I’m Mary, a 21 year old Irish girl (woman? Not sure if I’ve made the transition yet) living in London. I moved in August 2014 to do an MA Magazine Journalism degree after limited options at home in Ireland. Emigration is hard and I didn’t have very much choice but to leave to try and pursue my goals.
I’m currently editor of Synced magazine, a publication for London-based students looking to read trending, pop-cultural topics on-the-go. We’ve just published our final print issue so give it a read! I love writing and it’s something I’d be lucky to do as a full-time career. My course is finishing at the end of March so shoot any and all information on prospective jobs my way.
I don’t have a plan of where I’ll be next year. I may move to New York and try my hand at the whole ‘American Dream’ thing, or I could head back to Ireland and try my (not so great) luck there. I would, of course, prefer the latter but I’m going to follow the jobs as if I was Dorothy on a yellow brick road. Though I don’t think my path is quite so gold gilded.
