Back to the Grind

What seems like the blink of an eye and here we are embarking on the beginning of Trimester Two.

I had so many plans to create content over the uni break and barely did a thing. I think I was more fried than I realised…3 units, homeschooling and moving will do that to you. I did enjoy the sweet downtime and relaxation the break provided even if I wasn’t as productive as I would have liked.

Given that I am only studying my last unit this trimester I plan to make an effort to continue blogging and posting on socials. Afterall, social media is a passion for me and I cannot wait to get started working in the industry.

I am eager to gain the all important hands on experience that only a job can provide. Part of me wonders just how people in the industry got their start in it, because there always seems to be the catch 22 of every employer wanting someone with experience. If you are someone working in communications/social media I would love to hear how you got your start and what advice you have for those just starting out.

Actually that just gave me an idea to reach out through some of the connections I made last Trimester and ask those very questions and compile their answers in a blog post. I can’t be the only one interested to know just how they did it. Watch this space…

I think networking and making connections online with other people in the industry could potentially hold the key to gaining employment. The community that is available through those online connections is invaluable.

So a word to the wise for an fellow students who happen across this blog post, engage with your peers online…form those connections. You never know where the path may take you but try and enjoy the journey along the way.

I am always down for a collaboration so if you want to collaborate on something leave me a comment or contact me through my social channels.

The Beginning of Something Great

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Keshena.

Coffee lover, mother and wife, stationery addict, obsessed with all things cute. Some favourites are iridescent, rainbow, glitter and pink. That should give you a good idea of my tastes, ha…

I have always had an interest in all things social media and content creation but this year I have finally decided to do something about it.

I have decided to make it my career and in order to do that I needed to hone my skills and get a qualification under my belt to help me start off on the best foot.

So for the first time in my life I am going to university to learn all things digital media, I thought it would be cool to document my journey along the way. Hopefully I can share some insights as I learn and also use this as a way to share cool and creative content.

I hope you’ll join me on what will no doubt be quite the adventure. I will try my best to not bore you and with any luck maybe even inspire you to create something yourself.
