Stu­dent grate­ful for news­pa­per work

Stratford Press - - News -

by ALYSSA SMITH

For the past two years I have had the won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to work at the Strat­ford Press one day a week through the Gate­way pro­gramme Strat­ford High School pro­vides.

I have re­ceived a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence and my time at the Strat­ford Press has so­lid­i­fied my choice to pur­sue jour­nal­ism as a ca­reer. Next year I will be do­ing on­line cour­ses to learn more about jour­nal­ism to be­come a qual­i­fied jour­nal­ist, so I can work in a ca­reer that I have fallen in love with.

I would like to thank the com­mu­nity for let­ting me in­ter­view them and to write ar­ti­cles about them. If it wasn’t for the co-op­er­a­tive na­ture of the com­mu­nity, I would have had noth­ing to write about.

I hope the com­mu­nity has en­joyed read­ing my ar­ti­cles as much as I have en­joyed writ­ing them. I have been able to write about many in­ter­est­ing things while work­ing at the Strat­ford Press and I have learnt more about the Strat­ford com­mu­nity by do­ing so.

I would also like to thank Strat­ford High School and the Gate­way pro­gramme for giv­ing me the op­por­tu­nity to gain valu­able work ex­pe­ri­ence which will help me on my jour­ney to pur­sue jour­nal­ism.

Through­out my time at the Strat­ford Press I have learnt many valu­able lessons that will help me on my path to be­com­ing a jour­nal­ist. I thank my edi­tor Ilona for teach­ing and guid­ing me on this won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence and op­por­tu­nity.

■ Edi­tor’s note: Alice and I have thor­oughly en­joyed work­ing with Alyssa and look for­ward to see­ing her name in print in the fu­ture as she con­tin­ues her stud­ies.

ALYSSA Smith has fin­ished her Gate­way place­ment with the Strat­ford Press.
