We’ve made it to 10!! This post, written by Megan, is a brilliant way to celebrate this series entering double figures. I think I first came across Megan on twitter, and her writing is just superb (as you’ll see now!)
Hey everyone! It’s Megan here from Megan Elizabeth Lifestyle, and here’s a little bit about me. I’m 19 years old (soon to be 20, scary) and I’m from the exciting, thrilling East Midlands’ city of Leicester (sarcasm intended). Over the past 2 years, I have ventured further north to Leeds to study. My uni course is French and Linguistics, the latter of which I am constantly having to explain. Let’s just say it encapsulates pretty much anything to do with language.
I love my course, and I’d like to think that I’m not bad at it, but we’ll let my tutors decide on that. At this precise moment though, I am at home with my family, enjoying a 3-and-a-half-month summer which really proves the need of a £9000-a-year tuition fee.
Of course, I don’t spend my freedom binging on Netflix (well, maybe some of it). Instead, I have thrown myself into my main passion outside of uni: writing. As well as my blog, I work as a freelance writer for a company in Leeds, and this summer, I am writing for an online blog/magazine called Muddy Stilettos. I like to keep myself busy.
In the long term, I probably see myself as some sort of magazine journalist if all goes well, in a smart suit and heels, even though I can’t walk in them. Whether I could use the French side of my degree in this career is hard to say. However, in the not so distant future, I am crossing the Channel and putting those skills to the test for my year abroad. I won’t lie, I’m terrified, but filled with curiosity simultaneously. I’ll be teaching English as a foreign language in a primary school in Nantes. Fingers crossed it goes well and I won’t make a fool out of myself (I get clumsier with age, it’s a widely known fact). If the French education system suddenly declines, then you’ll know why.
I better be quiet now, as I do tend to ramble. Thank you to Kel for letting me take up a space on your fantastic blog.
