The Beehive Speaks is part-reference to my staple hairstyle, part-description of the buzzing thoughts and energy continually in my busy brain. This blog is an online collection of my work, which is posted on various platforms, all brought together.
I’m a fourth-year student at University of Warwick studying History, Literature and Culture with Spanish. This September I’ll start my Masters in Magazine Journalism at City University. I spent the third year of my course at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, which I have deemed The Best Adventure Ever. Whilst out there, I did the following; hosted two radio shows and showed the webcam viewers how to boogie; became WRVU’s Events Coordinator for In-Studio Appearances, organising about two in-studios per week; went on a volunteering trip to San Juan, Texas, where I worked with Hispanic immigrants; learnt more than I ever thought possible, both in class and outside; and completely fell in love with the South and, unfortunately for my waistline, their food.
I contribute to the University of Warwick’s student newspaper, The Boar, most frequently in the music, lifestyle, books and travel sections. I’m the Editor and Official Tweeter of CAS Culture, a blog I helped set up as a forum for students on my course to share their thoughts on North and South American culture. I also write for Mouth London, a student-run news and culture blog, in their arts section. I contribute to The Student Journals, mainly in their dining section, thinking up new and exciting ideas for your tummy. I have also contributed to Electric Banana and Latino Life. I have completed work experience at Essentials Magazine and later this year will be working at Marie Claire and Harper’s Bazaar.
When I can squeeze in some down time, I listen to as much music as possible, watch documentaries and dramas on TV and cook delicious food. I blog about anything and everything, including (and not limited to) music, film, television, popular culture, comments on society and people, travel, fashion, art, theatre and food. I hope you enjoy what you find on my site and do interact with me via Twitter or by posting a comment on TBS.
