why was it a secret?

“It was not meant to be a secret.

But I suffer with low self confidence, I second guess myself, can’t spell and sometimes I think my dreams are not achievable and that I will fall on my face whilst everyone is watching.

In December 2015, to give myself a challenge, I approached the Weston & Worle Mercury to see if they could help grow my humans project.

I met the editor Simon Angear and  reporter, Briana Millet at the WSM Mercury office about a year ago to date.

Simon liked the concept of Humans and agreed to share 1 human a week, launching January 13th 2016 with an introduction to the humans project, with my face published along side it…..

I hadn’t thought it through and didn’t want everyone I knew seeing my face in the paper next to a blog that wasn’t reaching its potential.

(I also think it also sold for a better story that I was anonymous and caught some attention.)

Briana wrote this beautiful article;


Brianna was my contact, she would receive my ‘stories’, edit them and make them readable to the human eye.

I would like to thank the Weston & Worle Mercury for allowing me that opportunity.”
