MJ 2011, Multimedia Producer / Public Information Officer, United Nations

‘The JMSC allowed me to develop myself as a true all-round reporter. Video, photography, writing, social media: after completing the MJ I am confident in my abilities in all of them. This versatility is extremely appreciated and sought after in today’s media world.

Learning journalism skills in Hong Kong also means real-life exposure to dealing with complex and sometimes politically sensitive subject matter—very useful if you want to work in any international capacity.

The JMSC teaches you to think on your feet, to see an interesting angle to every situation, and the skills to tell a story in the most powerful, impactful way.

Until I started my MJ, I dreamed of being a newspaper reporter, but I found my true passion and talent in the video and photo classes at JMSC. I love how the professors quickly distinguish each student’s strengths and give them every opportunity to develop them.’
