This will be my second year as a Writing Mentor, and I really enjoyed working with students from a wide range of subjects last year and guiding them within all areas of their academic writing. I am looking forward to working with new students this year and sharing my experiences of academic writing within higher education.
Hello, my name is Amy and I am currently studying for my MA in Disability Studies here at Hope, having recently completed my undergraduate degree in English Language and Special Educational Needs. Before starting my undergraduate degree I had not studied for quite some time and did not feel very confident about my academic skills. Attending a couple of sessions with the writing mentors really helped boost my confidence and improve my academic writing, so I am really excited to be able to offer other students the same confidence boost and help them in developing their own academic writing style.
I am currently studying my MA in Popular Music and Society, having completed my undergraduate degree in Music. It has taken a lot of time and hard work to get to the stage where I am now very confident in my academic writing ability and I hope that as a mentor I will inspire students and help them to become confident writers like me. I am passionate about writing and research and I feel that being a writing mentor is very rewarding. Outside of studying and mentoring, I enjoy reading, music, art, football, politics and travelling.
