Welcome! My name is Mary Kate Hickey, I am 22 years old and I am a recent Journalism Graduate from Dublin Institute of Technology, receiving a First Class Honours Degree. During my time in DIT, I took on various editorial roles, as well as social media and web based roles. I am currently doing an internship with Zahra Media Group and working as Editorial Assistant, writing, sub-editing and proofing articles for print and online. This blog is a portfolio of sorts for the various articles I have written over the years for various publications. For anyone who would like to read my work, you’ll find it here, along with unpublished pieces that I worked hard on for college assignments. Anything that has been published will have a link at the end for the original publication of the article online or an explanation to where the article was originally printed.
