Lisa-Nicole Mitchell: A byline on a story close to my heart

IT has been a very busy couple of months: with birthdays, deadlines and, well, the magazine in general. But now the holidays are here.

For me, the holidays couldn’t have come at a better time. Besides needing a break from the incessant travelling every weekend, and more deadlines gathering ominously on the horizon, I have the chance to excel myself in more work experience.

I love that feeling, and every intern ‘worth their salt’ will be the same; when you walk into a newsroom for the first time and they expect nothing from you, you are just ‘the student’, there to sit and write up some inconsequential copy.

And then they give you a chance and you impress them and really start to bring in the goods.
