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 my journalism degree made me a better blogger

I started Sincerely, Rowan almost four years ago because I was feeling overwhelmed after my first year of university and thought blogging would be a good way to practice my writing. I’d spent a year trying to find a balance between writing lengthy…
