Future Journalist?

Michelle Jones

Being a Future Journalist is a more than a little daunting. It almost sounded like I was going to become an Editor of a major newspaper next week.

The Future Journalists are all students: first years, second years and third years from around South Africa who were chosen to work together on various media projects.

We have just attended the Highway Africa Conference in Grahamstown. We attended lectures, discussions and workshops on an array of topics such as blogging, gender issues and the changes in journalism due to new technology. We were lucky enough to meet national and international renowned journalists. City Press has given us the amazing chance to be able write for them and be published.

I may not be editing that paper yet, but with these opportunities available to us, it’s only a matter of time.
