Welcome! My name is Mary Kate Hickey, I am 22 years old and I am in my final year of studying journalism in Dublin Institute of Technology. Since I started studying journalism in DIT, I have taken on various editorial roles, as well as social media and web based roles. This blog is a portfolio of sorts for the various articles I have written over the years as a journalist. For anyone who would like to read my work it’s all here, even some unpublished stuff that I worked hard on for college assignments. Anything that has been published will have a link at the end to the original publication of the article.
