MJ 2014, Video Journalist and Producer
‘I joined the JMSC with the hope of taking my work experience in video journalism to a new level, and to stay in Asia and work as a video producer.

Studying at the JMSC gave me the opportunity to learn from some of the most talented journalists and producers in the business. Not only did the faculty give me every opportunity to develop my storytelling skills, but the tutors also encouraged me to further develop my ideas, giving me a more thorough perspective on my work.

During my time at the JMSC I had the chance to carry out assignments that eventually led to work opportunities with media outlets including Radio Television Hong Kong and the South China Morning Post. This gave me a real foot in the door into a working life as a freelancer. But more importantly, the experience has given me the confidence to work independently as a journalist, and to continue developing my skills even after graduating.’
