My Favourite Aces Articles

  1. What we see when we look at other people 

I like this article because the author asks hard hitting questions that make you think about stereotypes and how they affect the way we perceive people. I also enjoy the fact that studies are used to back up the ideas and thoughts presented to us

2. WOC in beauty : Facebook HQ

I enjoyed reading this article as the author recapped an event she went to where she had the opportunity to listen to multiple women in industry. I liked the use of quotes that were taken directly from the speakers themselves 

3. How Sheku Kanneh-Mason Inspired Me by Luke Smedley

This article intrigued me as it is always inspiring to read about black youth who are doing amazing things and breaking barriers for other young people out there. I like how the author covered the subjects early life as well as career as this shows the research they put behind writing this piece 

4. Michelle Obama: From Grass to Grace by Yvonne Oparaku

I really enjoy the work that was put behind this article as it’s clear the author really took their time to research Michelle Obama. They managed to pull quotes taken directly from Obama herself 

5. The Legal Ladder: How to Become…

I like this article as it is good advice for those who are thinking about getting into law. The information is nearly laid out and easy to understand. It is again great to see the author has put in the time and energy to to really research the information that is needed. 

6.Art Galleries: Outdated or revolutionising?

This article explains a topic that is not spoken about. Although most people don’t go to art galleries it is interesting to see the authors reasoning as to why this is the case, many people wouldn’t think to hard about the reasoning behind it.

7. Samara Linton: Cambridge University

Is article is very eye opening as it is interesting to see what Cambridge is like from someone who has experienced it first hand. All the points in the article are broken down into key areas so that all topics are covered. I also enjoy that fact that Samara gives general advice for people who are, or are thinking of attending university.

8. 5 Life Lessons from Mandela

I enjoy these life lessons as the author elaborates on each point, this article also taught me information I didn’t know about Mandela. It is clear to see that the writer that the writer has taken their time to research Mandela and explain the quotes through Mandela’s eyes.

9.My Life Changing Evening with Female Leaders in Finance

I like how the writer breaks down her key main take aways into four points; originality, skill, networking and knowledge. As a young black woman it is inspiring to hear about other women who are rising the ranks in industry. It also helps me to see that there are people in industry who would happily support upcoming women.

10. Elizabeth Takes On Europe! Elizabeth’s European Exchange Experiences

As someone who has never gone on an exchange trip it is really fascinating to read about someone else’s experiences. I also enjoy how the author is open about the difficulties that arise when you’re in a different country that speaks a language that you are learning, it makes her feel more human and I can sympathise with her.
