The title says it all really! I’m pretty sure this year has been the best of my life, and I wanted write more about it but I think I would get a little too emotional (honestly… I actually cried a little just gathering these photos together!)
Besides, it’s time for my traditional New Year’s Eve celebration: watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 2).
So, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves, here are the highlights of my wonderful 2017…
A trip to London, reuniting with international friends.
A relaxed visit to the Wirral with my lovely parents, and a long awaited reunion with Helena in the wonderful city of Milan.
Completing my first ever Half Marathon, attending the UoB Languages Ball and the Guild Awards with the amazing UoB Linguist Mag team.
Escaping with Will to Manorbier, for the cutest little camping trip ever.
My first ever Pride, and attending the SPA Journalism Awards with my role model, Maddie.
Winning Student of the Year 2017, and going to a lot of end of uni celebrations with some of my favourite people ever *sniff*
Proudly graduating with First Class Honours, and a fantastic family holiday to Isla Canela, Spain.
My first step towards an editorial career: moving to Glasgow for my internship with HarperCollins. (Oh, and dying my hair pink!)
Being crowned Regional Winner for Europe in the Language & Linguistics category at the Undergraduate Awards!
Escaping to Wales with Will again, this time to Porthmadog, where we explored mountains and caves! (Will be writing about this soon!)
Beginning my career as a freelance content creator and editor (No photos to prove this but it’s true, I’ve been working hard, I promise!)
Running my second Half Marathon (raising £200 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital), rocking Halloween in my Chanel Oberlin costume, and embarking on a new adventure: launching the Aspire to Amble YouTube channel.
Hosting Aspire to Amble‘s first ever Instagram giveaway to celebrate reaching 2000 followers, and being invited to Manchester for the Christmas Foodies Festival.

Here’s to an amazing year! Thank you to everyone that made my 2017 as good as it was, I am so grateful to you all. Let’s hope 2018 is just as great, if not better!
