This is the end a project. The blog will remain online, but will not be updated. I have been accepted to a PhD program, to which I will dedicate all my energy. However, setting up and managing this blog has taught me a lot and has allowed me to further my writing skills and my general knowledge of political affairs, has kept me sharper when reading than I’d otherwise have been, while I was able to work directly in the field of international politics. And, last but not least, it has been a lot of fun!
It was the perfect way to remain engaged with my interests while I was not able to work in the field I wanted to. As such I would recommend anyone who is in a similar situation to start writing a blog yourself. It takes time, but, who knows, just the right person might read one of your posts and you get that dream job! Or it convinces you, like it did for me, to fight for your passions!
Good luck and thank you.
