Joel Kwizera commented on STUDENTS RADIO AND TV STATION AT THE MEDIA CHALLENGE ACADEMY

For the last three years I have closely been part of the media challenge, I can say confidently that I don't want to imagine my journalism life without it. Each and every year, more students get involved and the experience gets better. The struggle has been real but the fruits have been vivid as well. Practicing how to anchor in classes if not out in the open, to using very little and poor quality gear to booking studios for anchoring and of course given very little time that it showed in the result. Abas and his team however kept this so positive. Encouraging all participants to see the future. The hope and hard work they put to developing a professional media is totally heartfelt by those that have had a chance to participate. The idea of having the radio and television if successful would put the whole media challenge initiative to a whole new level. Not only to create jobs but to ease practice, to provide a real journalism opportunity for the students that is more realistic than what we could ever get. I wish Abas and his team the best as they work towards this great step. I will always be there for the media challenge initiative because I know what the goals and objectives are. I thank you for your persistent hard work and dedication to this project. Being an award wining anchor I completely value the impact you have made in my life. Of course beyond that is always the lessons I have had overtime. I feel more ready than ever to get to the field. God bless you in this year that you keep inspiring journalists to put out ethical and quality work.
