I was lucky enough to take part in BBC Radio Manchester Over To You project where 100 people from the region took on various roles in the station over one week in March.
The team liked the idea I pitched so I made a report talking to students who have come to Manchester from overseas to ask them what they think of the city.
On the day, I was mentored by BBC Journalist of the Year, Richard Stead. The report was recorded at the Fielden campus of The Manchester College. We then took it back to Salford Quays where I edited it. We then wrote a cue for the presenter to introduce the piece.
A few weeks later, many of the people who took part in the project were interviewed on a live show.
The recording includes the original broadcast report (including cue), as well as the interview that followed a few weeks later.
It was an incredible and rewarding experience and hopefully not the last. I can, however, now include BBC Radio Reporter on my CV!
