I didn't quite understand the importance of being chosen for the FJP programme . I must admit at first I took it lightly but being a part of the FJP family is an honor and a privilege .Many other young journalists would have loved to be in my shoes and other" FJPians" shoes . The experience that I got from this programme was life - changing and really amazing, I could honestly say that I'm going home as a different person.
From the first day I got here we were welcomed with such warm and love.We met the likes of "Malume" Sim ," Sis" Nqobile ," abuti "Lincoln, "cuzzy" Sushi and" ousi" Anele which taught us so many things from pod casting to editing .
I must say I met a great deal of different characters from crazy people( Thabo , Marcel , Thandi , and Zandi) to loud and very opinionated(Sakhy , Asanda) people then to quiet and reserved ( Majority , Nontobeko and Julia ) .
Grahamstown on the other hand was quite different , VERY SMALL and quiet. It seems as if everyone here in Grahamstown is one big happy family as compared to the streets of Jozi .I must admit I really had fun from being chased by dogs and walking all the way from "black market " to the Phelps house Residence .
I'M SO PROUD TO BE A PART OF THE FJP FAMILY
