For today’s career talk, we were thrilled to host Old Truronian Victoria Gould CO95, who shared how she’s made a career as a journalist.
Victoria found her love for journalism when studying for a post-graduate certificate in Journalism at Falmouth University. Although interestingly, Victoria’s first piece of journalism was written at Truro School for the Terraces magazine.
After university, she then volunteered at several radio stations to gain experience, followed by working at a number of small radio stations, before coming back to Cornwall to work for BBC Cornwall as a community journalist.
The talk gave the pupils a great insight into the world of journalism, and we’d like to thank Victoria for coming to talk about her experiences in the field!
