I am lucky that I make up for my limited verbal social skills by being an accomplished writer, which is what I’ve grown to become over the last few years. That I have is largely down to solid foundations and a rare moment of bravery towards the end of my time studying towards my A-Levels.
In May 2013 I sent a tentative email to a Premier League football website called A Different League along with a couple of examples of my work. Being the pessimist that I was back then I expected it to come to nothing, but two weeks later I was invited to write for the site and since then the quality of my writing has improved immeasurably, producing well over 3,000 articles to date.
This has provided me with the opportunity to write for other related websites and publications, including Football Italia, Football Espana and most notably, the Soccer 360 Magazine. Based in Canada, I write for this magazine every two months, where the true reward is seeing the finished product.
However, my work has not simply been limited to sport. In December 2013 I wrote two feature articles for the Avon, Gloucestershire and Somerset edition of the Primary Times magazine, while I have written news articles on behalf of the university I work for. I can also unashamedly count poetry as a pastime, which over time has become much more personal yet refined.
