Middle East Journalism Exchange
June- July 2019
During my Journalism degree at the University of Canberra I was selected alongside five other students and given a scholarship to travel to the Middle East for a cross cultural journalism exchange. We spent three weeks travelling in Qatar and throughout Jordan learning about the journalism sphere in the Middle East and the relationship it shares with the western world. We were given the opportunity to tour around the Al Jazeera news rooms in Qatar, work with other university students and collaborate with investigative journalists in Jordan. This experience not only taught me strong and effective communication skills in a professional setting but expanded my knowledge of international journalism, media bias, effective cross cultural communication and the in depth process of world wide news organisations.
During this time I produced a number of written and video journalism pieces about womens fashion, feminism, international inspiration in traditional clothing and cultural similarities and difference with food.
