Ellen Lovell

Ellen Lovell is a final year Music Journalism student at the University of Huddersfield. As a queer woman from a working-class background, Ellen is really into writing about politics, LGBTQ+ issues and feminism, and really not into media sensationalism. She is a firm believer that education is the absolute key to understanding the world around you, but you don’t need a university degree; learning about different points of view and getting out of your personal echo chamber is the best way to know more about the world around you. That’s exactly why she’s so proud to be writing for The Common Sense Network. In her spare time, Ellen can be found petting cats, playing video games and promoting her activism. She has experience in recording and producing podcasts and a radio show, and has written a range of articles for student magazines.
