Since August 2010, I have been working as a journalist in the Lurgan Mail, a local paper in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. I have reported on a wide range of stories affecting the community in the area and have gained valuable experience from doing so.
Before working for the Lurgan Mail, I completed an NCTJ accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Newspaper Journalism at Nottingham Trent University. My undergraduate degree was in Liberal Arts with History in St. Mary’s University College, Belfast which I finished in 2008. I am currently taking a course in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, and I hope to finish it before the end of 2011.
