Being part of the FJP gained me knowledge and at the same time it made me realise that there is still much that I have to learn. Looking back at the past three days I spent attending the Highway Africa conference I am asking myself what is it that I am taking back home with me, how am I going to use this knowledge to better myself as a journalism student and how will it contribute to my career. This was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
Coming here I did not expect to meet such warm people. We come from different backgrounds, and we have different traditions and beliefs but under the same roof we were able to share knowledge and the discussions that were held were an eye opener of how we can change the world as young journalists.
