For the past 5 years, I have been a freelance writer/journalist and I've been offered some prestigious training with the BBC, Sky and many other news outlets in order to become a fully fledged journalist with a guaranteed job at the end of the 12 months of training. This, sadly, is not free & this is where you come in!
As some of you already know, I have a Bachelor's degree in Pharmaceutical Management and I have been unable to find a job role relevant to my qualifications since graduating in 2010. So I thought it was time to pursue my passion as a more viable career particularly as I have had and continue to have success as a freelance movie reviewer for various publications as well as my own websites (links at the bottom). I would not only be trained directly with practitioners but I would also be given the opportunity to share by-lines, learn shorthand, report on court cases and get one step closer to my dream. A dream that seems unattainable financially! Can you help me??
I only recently found out about this opportunity and I'm excited to begin my new adventure in London at the helm of so much amazing media. There is not enough cultural diversity in our journalists today and I'm quite happy to add myself to the mix and represent my country Rwanda with pride!
I will also be working part-time to supplement myself - any amount received will be greatly appreciated! Any extra amount raised above the cost of the training will go towards my living expenses and travel costs for the year.
Soon you'll be seeing me reporting from various locations around the world, in 3 languages and you can say that you helped make it happen!
