by Victoria Ayodeji Are you considering a gap year or a sabbatical? Or do you know someone who is? Well according to The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) I was one of the less than 6% of students yearly who defer their university entry and instead take a gap year.

We grow up hearing that we should stand up for what we believe in. However, as we grow and begin to put this into practice, it is often dismissed, undermined and ignored. To stand for something and up to something means to advocate. We advocate for what is right and for the rights of others. We want equal treatment and opportunity for all, including ourselves. Standing up for others and ourselves is a testament to how we see ourselves and the world. In standing up and advocating, you show that you value and support the rights of all. Standing up for what is right is a vital part of our humanit ..read more

How to Navigate the Current Job Market

The current job market is an exhausting one. Despite countless stories of labour shortages and more roles than ever available before, for those looking for a new job, these ‘jobs’ seem to be in short supply. In an outrageously competitive market, it seems that there are more applicants than roles available. As a result, a skilled, capable and talented workforce is unable to progress in their careers. Applying for a new job and looking to make a change or progression can be daunting enough, but in a time when more people are looking for jobs than being hired, it can be anxiety-inducing and over ..read more

by Abimbola Adeagbo Catherine sat on the edge of her bed, her hands nervously tapping on her thighs. The weight of her responsibilities and the pressure of her failing relationship had been eating at her for weeks.  She didn’t know how to cope with the stress anymore.  “Hey, Catherine, are you okay?” Her roommate, Sarah, asked, peeking her head into the room.  Catherine looked up and forced a smile. “Yeah, I’m okay. Just dealing with some stuff,” she replied, her voice strained.  Sarah walked into the room and sat down next to Catherine. “You don’t look okay. You look like ..read more

by Priya Mohal Navigating the delicate balance between expressing oneself and maintaining respect can be a challenge for South Asian women.  Growing up, I often felt disheartened when urged to be more assertive and confident in myself.

Isn’t there something so magical about a new year? The offering of a fresh start, a blank page. A whole year to seize. To us, it’s the most exciting time of the year. A time when we can sit down and really determine what we want and how to work towards it. Now, we know there is no real magical change that occurs as soon as a new year begins, but the symbolism of it all is the best part. The idea that with the beginning of a new year, our lives can change for the better. We can be more, do more, achieve more and most importantly, be happier. Don’t get us wrong, we do not subscribe to the idea t ..read more

by Mani Hayre When are you getting married? Who hasn’t been asked this question at some family function by a random, and often not-so-random family member?  Particularly if the woman in question is over 35 and perceived to be getting older, less viable and one who is seen to be living her best life and thriving, yet nothing will compare to being seen as fully complete without a marriage, husband and kids. I mean what does it matter when our accomplishments can range from a promotion, thriving in our field of work, buying our own place, publishing a book, solo travelling, or just living a ..read more
