2014 Young Reporter
Abdoulie is a unique member of our Alumni, as he took part in the scheme all the way from The Gambia in Africa, back in 2013/14.
He said that doing the Young Reporter Scheme honed his skills, opened his horizons and prepared him well for an exciting role as an African journalist. He added that the scheme put him ahead and significantly contributed to career development presenting opportunities, which wouldn’t have been available without the experience gained from participating in the Young Reporter scheme.
After leaving school, he worked in migration at the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), the UN Migration Agency as a Communications Assistant and currently works as a Project Manager and Communications Lead at the United Nations Office for Project Services in The Gambia.
Abdoulie recently graduated with a first degree in Journalism and Digital Media at the University of The Gambia. He hopes to come to the UK for his postgraduate studies to pursue a degree in Globalisation, Innovation and Sustainable Development.
