about

Hello! My name is Emily Wind and I am a journalist student 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 DOLLY Magazine, the Hunter Business Review and HUNTERHunter, and was featured on an episode of 'My Great Big Adventure' on the ABC.

I am currently studying Communication (Journalism) at the University of Newcastle, and am Deputy Managing Editor of the student-run 'Yak Media'. You can read my posts here.
