I really think that I wouldn’t have the job that I have now as a producer and reporter at Channel 9 here in Perth without this scholarship It really gave me amazing access to some of the best journalists in Australia I had such amazing mentoring during the program and it also just really gave me an understanding of how a newsroom worked like a university course couldn’t. From going out on the road and following journalists and cameramen to sitting with producers and also watching the news go to air from inside the control room you’re given amazing access to show what it takes to put the news to every day. I think also every young journalist has a dream of, you know, working on a program like 60 Minutes so to actually spend a month doing work experience there was incredible I got to do in a way trip with them which I never would have even imagined being able to do at the age of 20. So to do that was completely unforgettable Even if you think that you won’t win you should definitely apply. I never thought I would have won, and now it’s given me an incredible start to my career that I never could have even imagined when I was a university.
