Veronique Hawksworth swiftly converted her skills gained at Reading’s Department of Politics and International Relations , to take on a vibrant, public-facing job.
Since graduating in 2019, she is now a journalist, writing lifestyle features for UK’s best-selling women’s magazines.
“I source and write real-life stories for Chat, Woman's Own and Woman's Weekly magazine. I also freelance for Vive le Rock magazine, writing music features, reviews and interviews. I juggle this with my work as a touring keyboard player and vocalist.”
Veronique considers the process that led her to the University of Reading:
“I became interested in politics during my A-Levels, and knew it was an area I’d want to study in-depth. The modules at Reading immediately captured my imagination. Of all the universities I looked at, I remember thinking that Reading had a diverse range of course content as well as study approaches. When I attended an open day, the staff seemed to really care about their modules, and their energy for the subject shone through.”
