Answering your questions about taking a gap year
Why do people pronounce it gap yah? Do you think it's better to work or travel?  Do you think taking a gap year was right for you? Do you feel more prepared for uni? Would you recommend taking a gap year after uni?  Why is there so much stigma behind not doing anything in your gap year? If you had to, how did you find explaining a gap year to parents/aunties etc Ways on making the most out of the year Finding a job on a gap year. Should we say we’re on a gap year? How did you go about planning the year abroad? Is it more difficult coming back to education after the year out? Is it worth it? What are the best ways of using your time through a gap year? Did you apply for university alongside the rest of your year group at school or wait for next admissions? What can you do during your year out? Are you scared of losing your academic skills after taking such a long break? Is it hard to not be around your friends due to travelling, working, me being at home vs them being at uni? Did you spend your gap year in the way you expected?

Does Love Island need to be more diverse?
Do you want to see diversity on Love Island? How do you think diversity would change the show? Should the show be axed? "We want to be representative as possible but we also want them to be attracted to one another" Memes about Yewande already  How far do you think the show promotes love as being a visual thing over a spiritual thing? Do you think that society now and social media has an obsession with wanting things to be "real"?
