Joanne Lam

MJ 2013, Assistant Editor, SCMP STYLE Magazine

‘I joined the JMSC fresh out of my undergraduate studies looking for insight and practical experience in the world of journalism. The course, professors and alumni network offered an invaluable opportunity for me to gain exactly that. Beyond garnering a stronger news sense and learning new technical skills such as online journalism and video producing, the JMSC also offers students a real foot in the door into the world of journalism.

During the course, I completed multiple internships including with the International Heard Tribune (now the International New York Times). Through another internship opportunity, I secured a full-time position with the South China Morning Post where I am currently Assistant Editor for STYLE Magazine, the newspaper’s monthly glossy publication. At the Post, I work in close proximity with many fellow JMSC alumni—the friendly faces are always a bonus when you go into work.’
