Rebecca Louise Hepworth

My name is Rebecca Hepworth, I am 20 years old and in my third year of studying Event Management. University has inspired me to volunteer at a range of different events and get involved in the local community and help on behalf of good causes. I love all things vintage and exploring vintage fairs for that unique item I can make my own. In my down time you can often find me exploring in a museum. As graduation is fast approaching I have found blogging a good outlet to reflect on what I have achieved and what is to come.

I've lived in Lincoln for most of my life, and after choosing to study my Journalism degree here too, it's safe to say that the city has quite a hold on me. After writing for the school newspaper since I was 11, it was pretty exciting to discover that people get to do this for a living. I love sharing stories; whether they involve fashion, make up or anything else I'll get myself into (or out of) while at university.

Hi! I'm Ella, El-Dog or El, whichever you prefer. I'm a now second-year student at the University of Lincoln studying Investigative Journalism (which ironically, is now no longer a course...

I have links with the British Army, which heavily influences my writing, and area of writing I wish to branch out into (military coverage). Originally from Kent, also known as, “The Garden of England”, though I really don’t know why it is named that, unless you count the little garden patch in the middle of Herne Bay a garden, but I really wouldn’t, however it is pretty I guess.

I’m Lisa, a 23-year-old MA Arts Journalism student. I moved to Lincoln last September without ever having been here before, and so far I’m really happy with my choice. Before that, I did an undergrad in English and American Studies at the University of Innsbruck in Austria (that’s where I’m actually from).

But to be honest, I love writing about anything, whether it’s for uni, for blogs or just for fun – give me a pen and a notebook and I’m happy.
