Row

Hi there,

My name is Rowan, and I am a Journalism student at the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I am a self-proclaimed dreamer, and am passionate about music and writing.

I love thinking about what the future holds, and making lists of all the things I hope to achieve. Someday I will travel the world. But for now, I'll daydream about faraway places I hope to visit, and the people I hope to meet.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope we will meet again soon!

Sincerely, Rowan

How to Fall in Love with Reading After University

Reading was a huge part of my childhood. I would get so immersed in stories that I’d walk home from school reading, or try to sneak a chapter in during class under my desk. My parents always encouraged us to…
