Just received an official offer as a contracted writer at DiVine. A big YAY!
Back in March, I submitted some writing to DiVine. The editor read it and looked further into my blog and selected a couple of blog entries he thought could be good modified for DiVine. Since then I’ve written nine articles for them – all of which I’m really proud of. Especially the body image article that has just been published.
It feels so great to be contributing to this website, and making a difference to the disability community (and also educating my friends, family and strangers).
I will still be working my full time job, doing uni until the end of the year, presenting/interviewing on community TV and volunteering at the Children’s Hospital, though.
I am going to toot my own horn here – I am so proud of myself for following for my dreams to be a writer and now achieving them.
Also, I think I was far too tired to fully appreciate filming for No Limits on Saturday, but thinking back now, I am really proud of the great job Carrie and I did at the dinner-dance.
Neither of us had been in front of the camera before, and I think we were both in a new environment, but I really feel like we made a difference to the disability community and achieved personal success. It was a great buzz to be directing, interviewing and presenting – challenging yet so much fun!
Wow. I love life!
