Hi, I’m Jasmyn. I am a young Australian woman navigating my journey from student to working professional. I like to write about unpaid internships, what university means for the future of work, and all things digital and social media.
If I told you I have had the privilege of interviewing people like Christyl Johnson, Deputy Director for Technology and Research Investments at NASA and I’m graduating my degree with two years working experience, it sounds impressive. But, you don’t get to see to triumphs, failures, burnouts and determination that got me there.
When I tell people that I’ve completed 3 internships before even reaching my graduate year, they look at me like I’ve got two heads and six eyes…
In 2012, it was all about the Thigh-Gap. And, then the Kardashians brought in the Thigh-Brows. And lately, we are celebrating everyone from athletic women, to curvy girls, to drag queens (the most prevalent praises on my personal Instagram feed) and everyone in-between. So why do I, like many others, still feel the need to ‘fit’ a certain body description?
