Date Posted: 24/03/2021 | Posted In: Media, Student News

Sophie is a first-year student studying Media Studies, Film Studies and Photography at The Sixth Form Bolton. Sophie entered the BBC’s Young Reporter competition last year and is now part of a team of young reporters creating podcasts for BBC Sounds. Sophie’s next podcast is now available and also reflects on the Covid-19 pandemic:

Sophie was picked by the producer to shape the discussion on Hear Me – Lockdown: Viral voice notes – Part 2; they have created a wonderful piece of work.

BBC Young Reporter is an exciting opportunity for young people to get involved with the BBC. BBC Young Reporter works in partnership with schools, colleges, youth organisations and charities to provide young people with the skills they need to create and understand the media. The project is backed by the likes of Huw Edwards, Tina Daheley, Radio 1’s Greg James and Katie Thistleton, The One Show’s Alex Jones, BBC Newsbeat’s Roisin Hastie and Ben Mundy and Newsround’s Ricky Boleto.

Well done to Sophie for her latest BBC Sounds podcast efforts and also her involvement as a whole with the BBC Young Reporter project, this is a brilliant accolade for Sophie’s CV. We look forward to hearing more from Sophie on the BBC soon!
