Where do I start? Well I'll start by saying LIVE was GREAT, FUN and FRIENDLY.
I wasn't really looking forward to work experience because I thought I would have to work and do nothing but work all day , I preferred to be at school in a environment I was known and familiar with. But by the end of my work experience all that changed. Normally at school teachers will be annoying and i might have a got at them, but at LIVE I was sort of free. The first week of work experience went quickly but by the second week I became tired. I started going to bed at around 8:00 and on a normal school day I would go to bed about 11:00.
My journey to Piano house was nerve raking, I had butterflies in my stomach. Every step I took up the stairs, the closer I got to the LIVE office the more I wanted to turn around and go back home. But LIVE where really welcoming and within seconds I stopped worrying. I'm interested in illustrating/design and coming to LIVE gave me a chance to do what I enjoyed. LIVE is a magazine by young people for young people which i think is a great way of getting young people out of trouble..
I really enjoyed writing articles even though i had to do them over like eight times. I realised writing articles is not as easy as it seems. I also enjoyed designing my page and front covers for the LIVE magazine, which also proved to be difficult. I think being at LIVE has shown me I'm a lot smarter than I thought. I have achieved a lot of things such as writing my first article, having the confidence to communicate with people, I've used my english skills to the best of my ability.
At LIVE there was nothing that I really didn't enjoy and wouldn't do in the future. Now I have been at LIVE I would consider being a journalist, designer, illustrator or anything else involved. The people at LIVE where extremely friendly. My new role in LIVE is maybe to do something with sports and maybe do some designing.
