    Look out, world of journalism! Year 10 student Giulia Provenzano has some real experience now after spending two days with Bond University’s world class journalist team and state of the art newsroom facilities.

    As part of the 2019 Bond University Model UN Conference (BUHMUN), students from all over southeast Queensland were recruited to expertly cover the days’ events through a constant stream of Facebook updates, video interviews, Tweets, and even a printed BUHMUN Newspaper.

    Students received extensive workshopping and guidance from Bond University lecturers on the most professional journalist tips and tricks, resulting in professional publications of such a high calibre that they attracted the attention of the United Nations Press Secretary, who ‘liked’ their posts on Twitter!

    Giulia soaked up her share of the fun, authoring two articles in the paper and co-authoring another, as well as composing two video interview compilations for social media. The social media stream from the event can be viewed here.

    To top it off, Giulia received one of just three awards presented to the student journalists for Best Committee Coverage throughout the conference.

    Congratulations to Giulia on managing her time and workload during exams to participate in this exciting opportunity.
