I hope to gain an insight into the field of journalism in a professional setting, and explore the ways in which media operates in Cape Town. Throughout this programme, I would like to receive guidance from South African journalists and have the opportunity to expand my network in the sphere of journalism. I hope to also publish my works along the way and create a portfolio of my pieces.
I hope to develop real life skills in an ever-changing and exciting work environment. I'm incredibly passionate about multiple different forms of media, having had a little experience in both journalism and radio, and I'm really hoping to further my knowledge of how this works in a career setting. Furthermore, I love the world of marketing and want to explore whether it is something that both appeals to me on an enjoyment level and a success level! I really want to make a change in the world (as cliche as it sounds) and Bridging the Gap really appeals to me in that way.
