New Teen Skepchick on the Block
Buongiorno, everyone! My name is Beccy, I’m 16, and I’m the newest member of the TS team. I’m really excited to be a part of all this sceptical blogging wonderful-ness, and I hope that I’ll be able to contribute something worthwhile to the site.
I’m one of those people who was always a sceptic, but had no idea that other people shared
the same world-view before my brother introduced me to the Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe podcast. I fast became a weekly listener, and gradually started to check out the blogs, books, and famous faces they had on their shows. Since then, I’ve been doing my best to pull my sceptical weight, and recently started my own blog.
When I’m not debating friends about the paranormal or attempting to educate people on alt med, I can be found in ballet class, on the rugby field, being artsy, searching around vintage clothing stores and drinking ridiculous amounts of tea. As far as careers go, I’ve wanted to be a journalist since I was a little kid, as writing is a passion of mine. I’m glad that I’m learning the critical thinking skills I’ll need to be a good reporter in later life.
Thanks to Skepchick for an amazing opportunity to contribute to an even more amazing site!
