Ellie Smith

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. Ellie got a starred first in her degree which is amazing and relevant to the story she tells as you will see below she struggled during her degree. She managed to not only get through it but achieve an amazing result. I hope you enjoy Ellie's story.
