“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic.”

Nice to meet you, I'm Seb.

Ever since I can remember, I have had a passion for writing.

Whether I was filling in the blank space of a birthday card, conjuring up a magical story or drafting a report, I have always been in awe of the power held by words. 

My love of the English language has heavily influenced my career path. As well as working full-time in Government communications, I have experience writing professionally for start-ups, investigative news outlets and social media. Check out my portfolio below for examples of my work.

And since a man can’t make one, He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one

On Thursday 16th May, Missouri’s Republican-led Senate passed a bill known as ‘Missouri Stands With the Unborn’. The bill was then passed by the House of Representatives on Friday and the Republican Governor, Mike Parson, is expected to sign the bill to make it law. As some of you probably know, or will have guessed, the law would ban abortions in nearly all cases; this includes pregnancies caused by rape or incest. This is not an anomaly or a one-off. This is just one example from the wave of

Gendered lens investing: what is it and why should I care?

When talking about impact investing, you may hear the term ‘gendered lens’ being thrown around. No, this is not an attachment you can add to your Nikon camera. It is, however, an opportunity to view the world in a more focused way… so I guess there are similarities. Gendered lens investing is a branch of impact investing, which can be neatly summed up as ‘doing good while doing well’- a win-win in our eyes! Jackie VanderBrug, who is a renowned leader on the topic and Managing Director at Bank o

Check out my six-pack, it’s plastic free!

It’s a universal truth that there is no better place to enjoy a beer than on the beach with a group of mates. However, the beaches we know are under attack; not by sea monsters or giant sharks, but by plastic. According to Green Peace, a shocking 12.7 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our ocean each year. To put that volume into perspective, it’s equivalent to a truck load of rubbish every minute. The reason this post started by directing your thoughts towards beer (other than the fact it’s

Because our planet is worth is

L’Oréal has for a long time been known for its work on sustainability (bravo!). In fact, they are the first and only company to be awarded a triple ‘A’ rating for three years in a row by CDP. What is CDP we hear you ask and why should you care about the school grades they seem to be giving out? They are a non-profit global environmental disclosure platform that analyses data about companies’ environmental impacts, risks and opportunities and then scores each with a ranking of A-D; or in simpler

Trying to find a student house? This is the most important thing you need to remember

Housing was something that meant very little to me before I started university. I lived in my parents’ house and I knew a bit about the property market, but it was never an issue that I needed to spend time thinking about. Like most, I knew that the norm for students in the UK was to spend the first year in halls then move out into a house. However, I was not aware of two things: how soon it had to be sorted and how complicated it would become. By early November in my first year, mention of hou

The Criminal Justice System Fails Victims of Sexual Assault and Rape

The other day, I stumbled upon this article. It was horrifying yet disturbingly familiar, and particularly poignant given my previous post. For those who have not seen the coverage surrounding the event, a teenager from Cork had her underwear used against her in a rape trial. The barrister representing the defendant, who was found not guilty by the jury, exclaimed: “You have to look at the way she was dressed. She was wearing a thong with a lace front”, insinuating that the alleged assault could

Bath Time Investigates: Study Drugs on campus- Part 2

Often there are questions and significant hurdles that arise when sourcing study drugs. Under the obvious impression that the only way to access these drugs would be through buying them from someone who suffered from ADHD, ADD or narcolepsy. Indeed, there are those that use this method: one of my sources explained how he only used his medication during the exam period, selling any surplus that remained. Despite the fact that selling prescription drugs is a criminal offence, he explained that the

Bath Time investigates: Study Drugs on campus – Part 1

This is the first section of a two – part investigation conducted by Bath Time. ‘My morning consisted of setting an alarm for 9, taking the tablet and going to bed for 30 mins. Once it kicked in I’d get up and shower and have a coffee. In the shower I’d instantly feel it, like I was so wired’. That’s the daily routine of one management student who took Modafinil, or the ‘Limitless Pill’, for a solid 2 weeks during exams. He’s just one of a growing number of students turning towards ‘study drugs
