Why go freelance?

Graduating when I did (woooo pandemic grad of the class of 2020), played a huge part into this decision. When it took months to even get a supermarket job, I used my spare time to write pieces for independent magazines, charities, and then I got an internship with the University of Plymouth’s iMayflower scheme which taught me how to work in a freelance capacity professionally. I knew about freelancing but didn’t understand how to do it. But the internship showed me it’s actually quite simple and the only things I really needed to know that I didn’t was how to invoice. After my internship I found a few one off paid jobs, and then got my first long-term client who I still work with now. Going freelance gave me the capacity to create my own work at a time where the unemployment rates had sky-rocketed.
