Media and International Development students set up fantastic new blog
DEV student Abbi Knell describes how the blog came about:
''I first saw the potential for creating a blog when I began my Masters course, and saw the range of talented individuals studying alongside me. I wanted to create a site through which everyone could share their own fascinating stories, or experiences in the developing sphere whilst keeping it quite informal as a break from academic writing. Through the keen interest and involvement of other MA students, the site quickly developed from just an idea to a physical website. With blogs on Brazilian photography workshops, to filmmaking in India, we've created a highly interesting and engaging site to gain first hand experience of the development sector.''
