Since starting Global Academy last year, I have learnt how to use software such as Adobe InDesign and Photoshop. As a result of learning the basics in my digital lessons, I am now using my new knowledge and skills to create my own media products.
During the last few months I have published an eBook ‘Kat’s Teen Guide to Successful Veganism’, as well as my very own online portfolio ‘katsullivan.co.uk’. What inspired me to create my eBook in the first place was identifying a gap in the fast growing vegan market.
When I became vegan, three years ago, I not only struggled with things such as finding recipes that were easy and quick enough to make on a school night, but also getting my friends and family on board with my decision to become vegan. These are all topics which I cover in my eBook Throughout my time at Global Academy, we have been given various projects such as creating self-portraits in the style of different artists and designing shoes and websites.
These projects have helped me improve and develop my digital skills to make it possible for me to create my very own media products!
