Vicky’s love for writing has developed ever since she was a young child, thrilled at the prospect of creating a narrative which could whisk a reader away, and transform their very being. Studying Drama and English Literature at the University of Manchester, Vicky’s knowledge and ardour for texts expanded as her reading lists began to grow. Delving into play texts and classic literary texts, Vicky began to write short stories of her own and plays within her modules at University. During her time there, she began to immerse herself in the student paper, developing a passion for journalism and interviewing, aiming to provide a voice for the voiceless and to engage, educate and inform others on a number of topics such as; humanitarian values, international news, world affairs, travel, adventure, extreme sports, culture, women’s rights, music, arts and the justice system.
Highlights include; writing about her opinion on smoking for The Independent, interviewing musician Jorrel on using music as a catharsis after suffering from domestic abuse for Public Pressure and writing a personal reflection piece for Thought Catalog.
