Having completed my 20 days of professional experience, although many of my projects are still ongoing, I have taken the time to reflect not just on the details of what I have done as I have done in my blogs but the things that I have learnt and the route from the completion of these onto my dream job in writing for children’s media.
Using the tools around me, such as the SWOT analysis I did at the start of the module and the other artists that I have worked with have not only helped me to produce this presentation demonstrating my journey but have given me skills which I am certain will benefit me in the continuation of my professional journey.
