The fun we've had!

Ongezwa
Today is the last day for us here at the Future Journalist Programme Workshop at Rhodes University. It is a sad day but it’s ok. Some of us miss home and some don’t. But we keep telling ourselves that we will see each other in June. That’s pretty close if you think about it. I remember when we first arrived, it was strange. We didn’t know each other but after a day or so things changed. We were no longer strangers but a team.
I, for one, didn’t know what to expect or what was expected of us but within no time I felt comfortable. The camp was my first camp, it was my first time away from home, and I have never had to spend days with strangers. The outcome for me was great. Teamwork, friendship, patience, confidence and trust are just a few of the things that we learned from the Team Building Camp at Umlambo. As we got back from the Camp we did a lot together and shared our life experiences. That for me has made me realise that there’s more to life and also that nothings impossible. This programme has been a real eye-opener for me and probably the whole group.

Don't get too comfortable my friend! There is still a lot of work. But it's a good start; and with time, it can only get better.
Let's read; let's write; let's blog.
And let's stay in touch!

Awww (clutching chest), gosh I'm so glad that the programme has already changed your life in such a short time. It's very encouraging because for us at Highway Africa and Future Journalists Prgramme, we want to do more than just make you a competent young journo, but give you the confidence to succeed in life and the kind of exposure that will show you that you truly can do and be anything! Thanks

They say when life throughs you a curve ball you either duck or let it hit you and pick and through it back into Life's face so that it may know that you are a fighter and take whatever balls no matter the size.
