Laura & Emily - Work Experience
Emily - I have been with academy fm since September, as part of my schools work experience, and have found myself gaining more and more interest in the media industry as a result.
The experience has been nothing but brilliant, and I especially enjoyed reading the news every morning, despite having to wake up in what someone my age would call nocturnal hours (6:00am!). When I’m not here at the radio or school, I enjoy reading, writing, listening to music, and looking after my rabbits, cats, hamster and guinea pig.
Laura - I have been at Academy FM since September on work experience and love every moment even having to get to work at 6:45am! (Which is a miracle in itself!) I especially love having the opportunity to speak live on the radio which I would never believe I could do a few months ago due to my shyness and lack of confidence. My musical taste has always been stuck in the past with my favourite band being The Beatles; I also love David Bowie, The Who, Queen and Madness. Hopefully when I get older I would like to be a midwife or go into something medical however the experience here at Academy FM has made me also consider going into the media instead.
