In 2015, I was lucky enough to gain work experience with the Wandsworth Guardian and the Richmond and Twickenham Times. During my time there I was able to shadow a number of experienced journalists as well as write my own articles. One of the articles I wrote involved interviewing Kathleen ‘Kitty’ Bastable who had just turned 100. Despite her age, Mrs Bastable demonstrated a deep rooted love of life and appreciation for positivity. Her positive mentality, independent nature and strong sense of humour will stay with me forever and will always be remembered as the vital ingredients for a long and happy life.
