This is Hannah Fleming! Hannah enrolled in the 2011 Journalism course, after winning the James (Snr) and Mary Garcia Scholarship. She went on to win “Top Journalism Student” of the year and now works for the Taranaki Daily News. Score! She’s really lovely, she came and spoke to the class in the first few weeks. Because of all her achievements, she became the postergirl for Witt Journalism, appearing on posters, advertisements, prospectuses, buses, and websites.
Today our tutor told me that Witt had been in contact, wanting a student to appear in early-2013 material (as Hannah appears in early 2012). They wanted a scholarship winner, and because he knew how much I would love to something like this, and I am a journalism scholarship winner, I was chosen! I am so excited about it, hehe! I can’t wait to get involved with something like this. Honour! =D
Anyway. There’s my bragging post!
Today was a good day. I had another story published in the Taranaki Daily News, and it is the first time a photo of mine has been published too. Also, I pushed the boundaries a little more by getting my email published in my byline – something only Daily News reporters do and not students. But I feel it’s important readers can contact me easily, so I included it and the editor of the paper had no issue with it (pun hehe). The story was good and got plenty of feedback, and I had a few people ask about it in the supermarket
Tomorrow most of the class is rising bright and early at 6am to drive to Hamilton, to hear a guest speaker at Wintec. I’m excited about my Witt world crossing over to my old Wintec world, and of course catching up with some people there! Gonna be a good day =D
