My name is Guinevere, and I am a quiet kid.

I am currently in my third year studying Journalism and English Literature, at the University currently known as Rhodes (UCKAR) in Grahamstown, South Africa. There are important issues to discuss at UCKAR – both the bad and the good – and keeping quiet can be debilitating. Writing is my way of making noise when my voice is unable to.

I hope that fellow quiet kids may find solace in my words and my experiences, as I navigate through campus – and the world – with social anxiety. You know, that lovely disorder where you experience an inexplicable fear of other humans. I hope that you will see that you are capable of sharing your mind.

Maybe you aren’t socially awkward, but I guarantee you know someone who is. So, stay a while, and you might learn a thing or two. Shy people don’t make much noise, but they sure have a lot to say.
