My internship allowed me to not only put into practice what I had learnt as part of my degree but also go beyond that to extend my knowledge and practical skills. It was a fulfilling experience, which allowed me to work both independently and as part of a team, always with guidance and constructive feedback.
My internship granted me the freedom to pursue and pitch stories independently, consolidating my theoretical knowledge and giving me confidence. The internship helped me to learn more about my own writing style and allowed insight into the daily decisions facing journalists in their work that can't be taught in a textbook alone.
The practical components of the Internships were invaluable. Both Internships I undertook gave me first hand experience and insight into different areas of the museum industry.
