‘A Foot in Two Places’ – The state of being between identities, places or periods of time.
I’m Emma, an amateur op-ed blogger from Belfast, Northern Ireland who has been living in Brussels, Belgium for the past few years. In this blog, I write about topics that interest me, provide opinions and analysis on social contexts and current affairs, as well as advocate for social issues/policies.
“You write in order to change the world … if you alter, even by a millimeter, the way people look at reality, then you can change it.” – James Baldwin (1924 – 1987)
I believe the written word is a powerful tool. It has the ability to awaken the conscious and can make the greatest of impacts on society. With the articles that I write, I aim to make my readers reflect on the message behind the article, increase awareness on social and political issues from a local to global level, as well as provide perspectives they may not have considered.
