Being a radio reporter in the midst of a cyclone is quite challenging – especially when you need to come face to face with your source – in order to get the best version of the story you are intending to tell. That was what I had to go through.
From postponing interviews to asking for extensions, and even the freakiest of all emails – asking to be dropped from the program because I have not been attentive — but all that made this project so unique. I had to juggle my work and participation in this program.
My work took me to places where I was completely disconnected from the world for two weeks. And that really affected me in meeting deadlines (something that we value so much as journos). But under the mentorship of Ms. Claire Caulfied, I was able to continue with this story. While my mentor provided me with the training required for this project, God provided me with wisdom and a story worth telling. I thank God for touching Ms. Caulfield’s life in supporting me through to the end.
