Short Life Story - I was born on the 11th of February 1992, in the town of Yeovil, Somerset. I was an ordinary kid until the ninth year of Secondary School when I was diagnosed with Crohns disease. This led to me being home tutored and eventually going to Somerset's Link Education Centre, where I finished my GCSEs. After my school years, I decided I would improve my artistic abilities by completing a Graphic Design course at Yeovil College. Two years later, I successfully gained my diploma and therefore decided to apply for the Interactive Media Production course at Bournemouth University. It was during this year that I discovered my passion for writing, specifically creative writing. Thus, I changed course and embarked on my Communication & Media journey, which consequently resulted in my current occupation at Yeovil College.
