Any advice for an aspiring political columnist?

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    My passion is politics. My goal in life is to eventually write articles on political issues as it is a huge interest of mine. Of course, i probably can't jump straight to being a columnist so i've thought of a few jobs i could do in the meantime. For a while i was thinking of becoming a reporter for a newspaper but i have recently decided that becoming a politicans assistant may be more enjoyable. I have chosen A-levels that will hopefully be beneficial to me in this carrer choice; History, English (lit) and economics and am hoping to go on to do history and politics at undergrad. So my question to you lot is what do you think of my decisions so far and do you have any advice? Any advice from people who have experiance in this field would be particularly useful. Thanks
