When I left my previous job, my leaving gift was this beautiful pink Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera. I have always loved Polaroid cameras because of their nostalgia, rawness and the excitement of printing pictures in real time. While Polaroid no longer make cameras, what they pioneered has been captured in this little pink number which has become my new best friend.
My job as a Press Officer at the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce keeps me very busy and actively engaged in the Lincolnshire community. It's completely turned my life in Lincoln around and I could not be happier or feel any more blessed than I already feel. In only a few weeks, I've been able to experience a completely different side of the county and I am actively involved in projects which will potentially put this little city on the map. I've gone from feeling like an outsider to feeling like I am part of something really great and this has made all the difference in the world. While I still miss home terribly and ache to be back in Johannesburg, I am also feeling content in Lincoln for the first time in nine months. I know that life shouldn't revolve around your work, but for me work has become a tool to unlock Lincoln and has helped foster a sense of identity and connection in a city which has felt alien for the longest time.
