Since Mindless, I've been writing my PhD proposal over the last month or so with the hopes of applying to Liverpool to continue further study, specialising in Victorian literature.

 

I also got a job interview for a postgraduate English tutor, which was a great experience, and my time at Mindless was a really useful reference to be able to explain my aptitude in digital learning, using online resources as well as writing for different audiences.
