Plug your mind
by Vanessa Mancini,
Plugging in your mind...Is media killing thought and the discourse of literature?
Born in Milan '84, moved to Germany in 2002 to complete nine month European Voluntary Service. Moved to England in 2003, completed BA in Humanities, Essex ‘07, then MA in Print Journalism ’08, after which moved back to Italy.
As a BA Humanities student, I enjoyed weaving through literature, art, history, archaeology, cinema, sociology, ideology & languages.
I’m still the same passionate advocate for animal rights and in love with nature; these ‘callings’ pushed me in 2007 to take the journalism MA , hoping to find a key to channel my ideals into live words.
Thanks to the help of conversations with people with specific knowledge I have become more stubborn pushing myself still to learn and understand the basics of the mechanics behind the major players leading the global scene, -from the most remote farmer in Afghanistan, to the fishermen and to the executives and CEOs.
For the past year I have had to ‘change plans’, as I’m dealing with therapy for Hep C. Aalthough I wasn’t able to pursue a fulltime job immediately after Uni as I planned, I found a space of time, in which I realised I can indulge in learning and catching up with all those more technical and factual aspects I never really got to dig freely in before.
Whilst working part-time I have set my self a few goals by the time I finish therapy next year: learning & improving more languages, researching and writing.
