Work makes great ex­pe­ri­ence

Chinchilla News - - LOCAL LEARNING -

HI, MY name’s An­nika Luebbe (pro­nounced Arnika, for all the people out there that are just too Aus­tralian).

I’m 14 go­ing on 15 this year and in Year 10 at Miles State High School.

I was born in Toowoomba and have lived on the same property, in the same house, in the same town of Miles, ever since.

I’ve al­ways been the cre­ative type, good in English... not so good in Maths.

When I was younger I as­pired to be things like a pro­fes­sional surfer, or horse rider, or gym­nast.

Al­though, as I got a bit older I de­cided those ideas were a bit wild and thought some­thing arty, with cer­tainty of a real job, would be more my style.

I fig­ured that my love of pho­tog­ra­phy could some­how be put to use and pho­to­graphic jour­nal­ism then be­came some­thing I got re­ally ex­cited about.

So here I am, sit­ting in this news­room, on my sec­ond day of work ex­pe­ri­ence typ­ing up this ar­ti­cle about my­self.

Maybe it’s just the people work­ing here, or the fact that my days have been pretty stress-free and re­ally fun, but I think pho­to­graphic jour­nal­ism is what I’m go­ing to strive for.
