Having the knowledge and practical experience to broadcast live sport has put me in good stead to write and understand the game. It has helped develop my confidence presenting on camera and it’s taught me how to communicate with industry professionals.

– Kendra Jewell, Editor in Chief at The Swanston Gazette

The biggest benefit I've found from the internship, is just how much I've grown in terms of expanding my skills. I’ve made connections, spoken to athletes, and got insights into the industry that has helped me get a job.
