My First Time… Bristol Edition

To mark the first month of the academic year, we took to the streets of Bristol to ask people about their first times. 

Trying something new can always be a little daunting, we tend to find comfort in things that are familiar. In this funny video, we ask the public to share their first-time experiences from their first job to their first crush in order to show that there’s a first for everything. The wise people of Bristol also shared their tips for success and how you can make this your best academic year yet.

To those who are off to university or are starting at a new school or college this month – you’ve got this.

Tag you’re it. We wanna hear about your first-times, what was your favourite part of the video? Let us know: @rifemag

Support more young people to have their voices heard

Rife is Watershed‘s online magazine created for young people, by young people.

We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.

In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important. 

Through supporting Rife you can ensure that this important work continues and that more young people have their voices heard.
