Welcome to the official Words With Heart Blog!
This is Words With Heart’s little hub to share new products and ideas with you guys! It will also serve a platform for feedback and discussion (so don’t be shy to leave a comment and introduce yourself ). Throughout this blog we’ll be talking about eco-friendly initiatives, girl’s education projects and anything else we find inspiring.
Hello! I’m Ellie Campbell and I’m the official Words With Heart Blogger. This time last year I was knee-deep in chemistry, anatomy and physiology assignments. After deciding that it was very close to impossible to be creative with science, I had an ah ha! moment where I decided to make a huge change and explore the field of journalism and marketing at Queensland University of Technology. I haven’t looked back since. My passion is food, I am a self-defined foodie. I absolutely love finding new recipes from different countries all over the world and trying them out. I find it incredible how I can travel the world from my own kitchen.
As a student, I believe that everyone should have the right to an education, no matter what gender. I also believe in the saying ‘words can change the word’. As a user of social media, I constantly see articles on my news feed that criticize women for their weight, height and general appearances. There is no doubt that social media’s popularity is on the rise, so I think it’s increasingly important for girls to receive empowering messages to inspire them and make them feel good. At the end of the day, any little empowering message makes a difference, and that is exactly what Words With Heart’s stationery does.
If you ever have any questions or anything else feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment.
P.S my first Word’s With Heart post can’t happen without something inspiring- so here’s Emma Watson’s incredible UN speech (if you haven’t already seen it- now’s your chance!)
Speaking of inspiration… Malala Yousufzai, the courageous 17-year-old girl who has become an absolute symbol for defiance in today’s society, won the Noble Peace Prize on Friday. I’d like to leave you with something Malala addressed to the UN:
“The wise saying, ‘The pen is mightier than sword’ was true. The extremists are afraid of books and pens.”
“The power of education frightens them. They are afraid of women. The power of the voice of women frightens them.”
