Update posted by Ash Hackworth On Aug 18, 2016


Hello Everyone!

I apologize for the delay in posting updates and for how brief this will be. I have work and have been putting in more time woo! Anyways I realized I have not included much details about the school or program, so I decided to do a couple of facts and add links for those interested in learning more. Thank you again for all your support and for those who recently donated I LAVAS YOU ALATTA! Anyways enjoy the post and see you all on the flipside.

University of Leeds

University of Leeds has been around since 1904 and is located in the beautiful student city of Leeds, UK. That is about 4 hours on a train north to London and not too far from Manchester. That is the city I would have to land in, to get to Leeds faster. The university has over 32,000 students with over 6,000 being international and over 8,000 studying for their postgraduates. The students who attend enjoy their experience so much 240,000 alumni still support the school. That is 240,000 people I have the opportunity to meet and network with - fingerscrossed! Lastly, it is ranked in the top 100 in the world and top 10 in EU, so the quality is astounding! Anyways if you would like to learn more about the school visit here: http://www.leeds.ac.uk/info/5000/about

Master's of International Communication

In short this program focuses on global media, meaning we will be dissecting all forms of media and analyzing it on a global platform. We will be exploring how messages flow and the relationship between global communication in politics, economics, and cultural affairs!

The main focus of the course will answer these questions: "how communications networks can function as a source of power, how they are regulated and how new technologies are changing the landscape."

I have the opportunity to take courses of my choosing like, Identity, Culture and Technology or The Media and Democratisation: Global Perspectives.

Hello everyone!

So I just wanted to let you all know that I am still working my hardest to take this huge leap! I also am greatful once again to those who have shared my page. So many of you have seen it and it's crazy to think about.

I just wanted to just remind everyone that even $1 counts! If 1,100 people donate $1 which is cheaper then coffee and even chips now a days, this could help me reach my goal!

Also I just got two positions on campus, which is exciting the only obstacle now is getting there. I hope you all can find in your hearts to assist me in building a better future. Every penny counts.


Much love to you all!

Good morning everyone! Today is the official start of my travel countdown. I am super excited to soon be on my way to Leeds!

Just giving you an update, my amazing mother is helping me cover the rest of my transcript cost, so the amount is now 1,100. I just want to say thank you so much mom you are the best.

I want to say thank you to everyone who has been sharing my page! That alone is super helpful and I do truly appreciate it. I look forward to what is going to happen and will continue to update you all on any new info.

Lastly I have an interview tomorrow for a position at the school, because why not pick up international work experience. I will give you all further information after the interview!


Much Love,


Ash
