The sessions were creatively impactful and enlightening as the challenges of media practitioners from all and sundry were explained. The stories of human right abuse, lack of press freedom, and reporting in the midst of violence have made me more passionate about this wonderful profession. Amidst the challenges, I learnt the importance of reporting credible, accurate, and verified news whilst being careful and abiding to ethical standards. I also learnt the right format of news reporting/Storytelling as well as the power of the media to tell the truth at all times. Furthermore, it was a phenomenal experience to learn from experienced minds in Africa, America, and from around the world.
