Welcome to my blog! My name is Siân Doherty, I’m 19 years old and I’m currently studying as a trainee journalist at Leeds Beckett University.
As a keen reader and writer, pursuing a career in journalism is very important to me. I am very new to Leeds and I’m falling in love with this vibrant city, but my experiences in my hometown have been invaluable. I have edited and written for a student newspaper, which led me to discover my enjoyment of the production and pressures that are part & parcel of journalism. After covering various genres, I found that I am particularly interested in music journalism and current affairs – topics that will be covered on this blog.
Many people view journalism negatively due unethical practice; I have always followed a strong set of principles and intend to do so in my line of work. I believe in balanced, educational and entertaining journalism, without any hidden agendas – I will reflect these ideals within the content on this blog.
If you value free-thinking reporting, the latest news in the music industry, political commentary and coverage of exciting events, you will feel right at home here!
