About Me

I’m Emily Lowes, 23-year-old freelancer & creative

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, and I decided to set up a blog to track my journey through the saturated overgrowth that is the creative industry. I’m a marketer, journalist, photographer, videographer, artist and much more.

I’ve taken courses and taught myself to create a stream of passive income from utilising digitalisation. Across the past two years, I’ve created a business for myself and become a successful freelancer.

As a blogger, I write all things lifestyle, breaking the comfort zone, and personal experiences.

As a journalist, I’m an investigative, solutions-led reporter. I’m interested in social justice & reform, class/gender/race inequalities and topics that people really (should) care about.

As a digital marketer, I use all the skills I’ve gained in PPC, CRM, SEO and online visibility to meet a wide range of business goals. I have experience with healthcare and higher education marketing, as well as a variation of blogs, businesses and websites.

I then edited and managed the site, curated and uploaded content daily in accordance with the strategy to subsequently build a site that was consistent with the brand.
