In second year of college I worked on a project called, a news website for primary school children aged 8-12 (from third to sixth class)


The site is password protected for the children’s safety so I am unable to link my articles and photography from the site here.  I did write a number of articles for the site, and took numerous photos.


For the duration of the year I was the photography editor and co-production editor.  I was also books editor and ran competitions for the readers to win a new book every few weeks once a review had been published.


It was a very rewarding experience, as it was my first opportunity to publish articles to inform other and also to receive real feedback from the readers of my work.
