Mere­ana gives re­port­ing a go

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Hi, I’m Mere­ana Austin.

I am in year 13 at Mata­mata Col­lege.

I am in­volved with the Gateway pro­gramme Mata­mata Col­lege of­fers and that is how I am gain­ing work ex­pe­ri­ence at the Mata­mata Chron­i­cle.

Gateway is an ex­tra cur­ricu­lum sub­ject the school of­fers to years 11,12 and 13 stu­dents to gain first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence in a pos­si­ble ca­reer the stu­dent may be in­ter­ested in.

I am in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a jour­nal­ist be­cause I have a pas­sion for writ­ing and be­lieve it would be ex­cit­ing to get a story across.

By the end of the year I would like to be able to write good sto­ries and to know if I am go­ing to pur­sue a jour­nal­ism ca­reer.

I would like to thank the friendly Mata­mata Chron­i­cle staff, es­pe­cially Ka­t­rina and Laura, for giv­ing me this op­por­tu­nity and guid­ance.

Mere­ana Austin
