Lucy O'Brien

Lucy was part of our 2016/17 Young Reporter class. She won in the Interview category and said at the time that taking part in the scheme exposed her to new experiences, such as interviewing people in her community and working with the Metropolitan Police.
 
Currently, she is studying at the University of Kent and hopes to pursue a career in journalism once she has graduated. She is the Newspaper Opinion Editor on her university newspaper and has discovered her love for opinion pieces, which is what she wants to specialise in. 
Lucy told us that the Young Reporter Scheme confirmed to her that journalism was something she was really interested in doing.
