about me

MeControlXXLUserTileMy name is Mel and I am really happy you are here!

Since I was a little girl, I have loved media in all its forms and have enjoyed writing to express myself. I love discussing and writing about film and video games. I am currently studying for a qualification in magazine journalism and my dream is to be a games journalist.

I am a feminist. I am deeply passionate about gender equality and the treatment of women in all areas of life, including everyday stereotypes and representations of women in pop culture and media.

I am an ardent advocate for mental health awareness and challenging the stigma surrounding mental illness. This comes from many years of first hand experience of mental health issues, and a growing understanding of the barriers and marginalisation that many with mental illness face in our society.

I am also a massive dog lover, tattoo enthusiast, and zombie apocalypse geek!

I hope you are enjoying your time at media mindwaves and would love to hear from you. Please feel free to drop me a line by email, on facebook or twitter!
