I assisted with the fact checking and verifying of the name of the murdered school girl Jodie Chesney.
I wrote these stories during my week’s work placement at the Culture desk under the supervision of Patrick Smith and Roisin O’Connor.
I worked here during my Masters degree. While I worked here, I covered many events throughout East London, focusing on Hackney. A personal highlight was covering the 2019 general election, and attending the Hackney vote count. It really allowed me to work on all the theory skills learnt on my course and put them into practice, such as multimedia skills and being aware of media law.
This was part of my final project during my MA under lockdown. We were tasked to create a magazine project from scratch. It highlighted that I was able to work under immense pressure and in strange new environment of working from home. The project was supposed to be a group effort, however, it was amended to be a solo endeavour. It is a pop culture magazine that sought to focus on both the old and the new.
