The Magazine

Welcome to our publication ‘My Life’! Our magazine is steered and put together for and by young people, focusing on themes and issues important to them. We publish nine editions a year in print and digital and encourage young people to contribute through writing, photography, design and business development. Want to get involved?

Become a Contributor

By participating in the production of our lifestyle publication, you are being given the platform to talk to your peers about topics that are relevant and important to you. You may wish to drum up support for a campaign or share some of your own poetry or artwork. We currently have 15 themes, chosen by our steering group and young people: Entertainment, Gaming, Art, Fashion, Beauty, Travel, My Planet, Sexual Health, Mental Health, Physical Health & Sport, Food, My Life, Careers, LGBT, Tech, and My Money.  

Our content is always evolving so if you cannot see an area of interest straight away – don’t worry, we will be able to accommodate! We will always aim to publish your content in print but please note that your article may appear online first. 

It’s really easy to become a contributor and you have the opportunity to be involved in as much or as little as you’d like. Please get in touch if this is something that you’d like further information on! We can’t wait to hear from you.

What’s In The Latest Issue?

Welcome to issue 46 of My Life!

The past few weeks seem to have sneaked up, and I can’t believe we are in December! I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on the last year, especially how much life has changed with the ease of restrictions over the past 12 months. The pandemic has seen a considerable loss of life- in several ways, and while we are still very much living with the threat of the virus, life has shown us glimmers of what used to be.

We can be proud of how we have coped during the challenging times, even when some of that has felt and continues to be difficult. I hope you give yourself some credit for what you have lived through and how adaptable and resilient you have been.

Next year will come, and with it, its challenges and celebrations. While I will not be making any resolutions, I will aim to spend more time with my family and friends and take my little boy on lots of adventures (#DisneylandPlease). I hope you will also be able to take some time to reflect on the year and what lies ahead. We can learn so much from recognising our strengths.

Student Life HQ has so many exciting projects in the pipeline for next year, including our 5th Birthday celebrations.

It’s incredible how much we have grown and developed, and I can’t wait to see what the coming year will bring.

I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable Christmas and New Year. See you in 2022!

Best wishes,
Rachel Mitchell
