My time with The Wildlife Trust was planned before the outbreak of Covid-19, meaning the nature of the internship was drastically changed at short notice. Instead of travelling up to the office in Seaforth, getting to know people in person and taking part in events, it suddenly all had to be done from home.
I had been hoping to do a lot of video production work to help promote the City Nature Challenge, as this is line of work I would like to go into. The circumstances meant I had to switch focus to writing a lot more. This was a good thing overall, as it meant I could boost the amount of published work I have to show future employers. I’m now finding myself doing much more voluntary writing about football to boost my portfolio, because this internship reminded me how much I enjoy writing.
