Say­ing farewell to non-dailies

Central Telegraph - - OPINION NEWS - OUR SAY ADEN STOKES [email protected]

JUST over one year ago I packed up my bags, threw them in the boot of my car and made my way to Emer­ald to start my ca­reer in jour­nal­ism.

It was by far one of the best de­ci­sions I have made in my life – not for a day have I re­gret­ted my de­ci­sion to work at CQ News and help out with the Cen­tral Tele­graph. The team has been so great and I am go­ing to miss each and ev­ery one of them.

I have learnt so much about jour­nal­ism and also about my­self while I have been here.

This was truly the op­por­tu­nity of a life­time, it gave me the ex­pe­ri­ence I needed and for that I am for­ever thank­ful.

It has also opened doors for me to move for­ward and up­ward in my ca­reer, and I am proud to an­nounce I have taken a job at the Morn­ing Bul­letin.

I am re­ally ex­cited about start­ing this new chap­ter in my life.

I am ex­cited about the op­por­tu­ni­ties this will bring and I am ready to face any chal­lenges that may come my way.

Rock­hamp­ton is where my fam­ily, friends and part­ner re­side, so I am also ex­cited to hope­fully start a fam­ily of my own some­time soon.

Farewell, Emer­ald and Biloela, I’ve had a blast and will never for­get you!
