Hello, it’s me. My name is Jack Edwards and welcome to The Jack Experience – a website and blog I created to share my perceptions of the world and talk about all the things I love. The inspiration behind this site derives from a genuine passion for writing and a frustration that there simply aren’t enough platforms for young people to write and share their feelings without a filter. I decided to design the website entirely from scratch, so everything you see is exactly what I envisioned. Unless, of course, you hate the web-design. In which case, I had absolutely nothing to do with it. In 2015, after my blog reached its first birthday, I decided to create a coinciding YouTube channel which I upload to weekly!
So, allow me to introduce myself properly. My name is Jack, I live in England, United Kingdom, and I am 18 years of age. Why does this sound like the script to a modern foreign language oral exam? I have just finished my A Levels, and will be enrolling at Durham University in October to study for a degree in English Literature. In the meantime, however, I am a male lifestyle blogger and comedy(-ish) youtuber, as well as a BBC Bitesize host! I love puns, Desperados and writing, and I occasionally pretend to enjoy running. Pleasure to meet you! Here’s a quick fact-file about me…
