Last June I moved back in with my Mum, Dad and our Labrador. I’d spent most of the previous four years away at university and working. Living at home has been good – sometimes great, occasionally frustrating. Here are a few things I’ve learned:
I recently caught up with Corrie Jones, who founded and runs her own social media consultancy business. Corrie and I met at university, where we both volunteered with charity societies. I’ve loved seeing Corrie’s career develop since then, so I thought she would be a great addition to this interview series. Enjoy!
Hello again, lovely readers.
If you’re thinking of applying for a master’s course in the UK, or you know someone who is, you might find my latest piece for Times Higher Education useful. Read it here.
More new posts coming soon!
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Sarah Beckett, Co-Founder of Birdsong, a London-based ethical fashion brand. Birdsong’s mantra of ‘no sweatshops, no photoshop’ is one I’m definitely on board with. The team works with a range of women’s groups and young designers to create sustainable, socially impactful pieces. I’ll let Sarah share the rest.
Molly: What led you, Sophie and Ruba to set up Birdsong?
Sarah: We all did the Year Here programme in 2014. Year Here is a postgraduate programme for young people who are interested in social change. It gives you a range of experiences in the social sector and you have to build solutions to problems along the way. We all had different experiences, but shared interests. Sophie had already been involved with lots of women’s activism.
