Christmas was spent in Australia (to see family) and China (to accompany my dad on a business trip). It was quite a rollercoaster, and I’m glad to be reunited with my Weetabix.

2018 promises to be a busy year. At the moment I’m enjoying contributing to the community at General Assembly as a Front Line Associate. General Assembly host full-time, part-time and day-long courses in user experience, coding and product management for professionals looking to enhance their skills or change career. It’s the perfect melting pot of education and technology that brings together enthusiastic learners and teachers pushing the boundaries of adult education. While my role is limited to cleaning classrooms, refilling coffee and printing worksheets, I look forward to gaining a unique insight into the future of education.

January’s co-working MeetUp for London Freelancers is just around the corner. I’m excited to see some new and familiar faces.

In February I am also assistant lecturing two days a week at Brookes University in Publishing. This will involve helping students make physical and digital products using InDesign.

In the meantime, I continue to read, write and tell stories, while taking a moment each day to appreciate this wonderful city.
