I'm now at my last year of my bachelor degree in advertising and thinking about my opportunities after graduating. I want to think that I'm perfectly ready to work in the industry but really it scares me a bit. I know that I don't know everything, I haven't been in the industry for a long time and I have a lot to learn, but what I know is that I will work, very hard to get there. I will be willing to learn, I will work day and night and I will do whatever it takes. 

This is my first year at Solent, I studied in Bergen, Norway for two years. This year is quite different than the last two. In Norway we pretty much made campaigns, that's it. Now we do that as well as writing a lot of stuff involving a lot of reading. But I'm having so much fun being hours in the library going over books and ideas! I know we all whine about how much it is to do and all, but I really feel like I'm going somewhere. Also the "stress" feeling about doing something all the time kind of gives me a kick!
