about the author: katie heyes, 20

I'm Katie, currently a Modern Languages student at Durham University, with an immense passion for writing and fighting against mental stigmas.


In 2018 I created my own personal blog 'The Self Care Journey', aiming to promote self-care advice and therapeutic ways to look after your mental health. 
More recently I have been volunteering in several writing opportunities for charity organisations such as Student Minds and Comics Youth CIC where I have had several blog submissions published through their editorial team.


Recently, I have also written many articles for my University's student newspaper ‘Palatinate UK,’ covering a range of topics such as trends in the film industry, reviews of TV Shows and live events. With experience in writing (both for leisure and professionally), I hope to use this platform to make a positive influence in the world in standing up for what I believe in.
