Emily Davison
My name is Emily Davison, I'm an eighteen year old English Undergraduate Student at Goldsmiths University. I also work as an ambassador for the University and have been recently placed with my first Guide Dog, Unity. I believe in changing stereotypes and never confirm to societies views. I have a passion for reading and I currently write poetry, novels and short stories. My goal is to write fantasy and science fiction novels for children and young people. As well as being the creator of a fashion blog for blind and partially sighted people, which is featured on insight radio every week as well as being featured on the BBC 4 In touch radio.

I also have a love of astronomy, which I obtained a GCSE in from the Royal Observatory, Greenwich earlier this year. I do a lot of work for charity, because I love to give something back to those charities that have helped me and so many others like me.

I love to write blogs simply because they capture memories, just like a photographer captures an image through the lens of a camera.
My motto is "Carpe Diem" and I always live by it.
