Hello! My name is Emily Wind and I am a writer and aspiring journalist from NSW, Australia.
I started writing my first blog at ten years of age, publishing content regularly for eight years. I later created a new blog and across the two platforms, amassed a total pageview count of almost 1 million. I have written for The Newcastle Herald, DOLLY Magazine, the Hunter Business Review and HUNTERHunter, and was featured on an episode of 'My Great Big Adventure' on the ABC.
I completed my Bachelor of Communication (Journalism) in 2019 at the University of Newcastle. During my third year of study, I was Deputy Managing Editor of the student-run 'Yak Media'. You can read my posts here.
