This Hey It Gets Better story comes from Ellie Smith, who is 22 and runs a feminist lifestyle blog from her parent’s house in an unremarkable town near Manchester. She is a 2020 BA English and History with Study Abroad graduate from the University of York (well done if you managed that tongue twister), and she is currently seeking my first full-time job in a digital or social media marketing role.

She managed to not only get through it but achieve an amazing result. I hope you enjoy Ellie's story.
