Rising above assumptions with Sinead Taylor

Graduating into a pandemic and moving back home to live with your parents may draw criticism from others, but Sinead Taylor is proving the doubters wrong with her flying freelance career

If you’re reading this as someone who has studied or is studying a creative subject at university, then you’ll be familiar with the classic assumption that people have, “you’re going to struggle to get a job with that” they feel the need to tell you. Add into the mix graduating into a pandemic and most people would write your career off before it’s even begun.

That’s the narrative that Sinead Taylor has been faced with in recent years and one of the ways that she’s had failure projected onto her without anyone so much as asking her how it’s going. Well, from where we’re sat, it’s actually going pretty well, despite what the naysayers would have you think.

In the third episode of The F Word, Sinead talks about her relationship with failure, the ups, the downs, the fears and more. We’ve been mightily impressed with her entrepreneurial spark, initiative, quality of work and mastery of self-promo since she graduated last summer and it’s a real treat that she has shared a little more of her story with us as part of the series.
