Struggle to Success

Last week at Leeds Trinity University was journalism week and I attended three guest speakers but the one who inspired me the most was the incredible Hollie Brooks.

Hollie Brooks is the senior editor at wetheunicorn, a site dedicated to all things YouTube and she says “being young is the most powerful thing in the world”

Since the age of 17 Hollie has worked as a freelance journalist and has had a number of jobs since, she works incredibly hard. Someone asked her how she got to where she is now and her response was “Several mental health breakdowns, hard work and too many tubes of pringles”

I was inspired by her story, being 21 and having myself struggled and still struggling with mental health hearing how far she has come has given me more determination than ever to carry on succeeding and to carry on concentrating on freelance work.
