28-Hour Marathon Broadcast - August 2019
I stayed awake, live on air on Radio BGM for just over 28 hours to raise as much money as I possibly could for Llanelli's hospital radio station! I hosted the show, but also played a key role in the planning and organising of the project.
ITV Cymru Wales - April 2019
Thanks to a short and pleasant email exchange, I was able to visit ITV Cymru Wales' headquarters in Cardiff Bay and spend the day with the team. At first, I was only supposed to witness their morning editorial meeting, but I even went out on a report and earnt the honour of sitting in the gallery watching the 6pm news bulletin go out live!
Careers Wales' Valued Partner Awards - November 2018
The work that Principality and my school, Ysgol y Strade, had done together over the past few years won an Gold Valued Partner Award in November 2018. As our digital work was made possible thanks to that partnership, myself and a fellow student were invited to present a short presentation on our experiences.

Principality AGM - Spring 2018
Once again thanks to our school's partnership with Principality, I was part of a team of pupils asked to produce a short video of their Annual General Meeting from a young person's perspective. Personally I helped in all aspects of production, including: presenting, camera-work, conducting interviews and editing the final video.
BITC Cymru Symposium - July 2017
I was lucky enough to help host the first ever BITC Cymru Business-Education Symposium, held at the Principality Stadium in July 2017, alongside Lucy Owen from BBC Wales and other students from Ysgol y Strade. Once again, this was thanks to the partnership with Principality Building Society.
iBroadcasting - March 2017
As part of a partnership with Principality Building Society, myself and 5 other students from Ysgol y Strade were chosen as the school's Digital Pioneers, and we were lucky enough to take part in the pilot of iBroadcasting, a sport-orientated broadcasting workshop started by technology company Aspire2Be and Scrum V's Sean Holley.
I started volunteering for my local hospital radio station in late 2016, to give back to the community and also gain vital experience for a career in broadcasting. You can hear me on Saturdays between 1-4pm and Tuesdays from 5-7pm, as well as the occasional cover slot too!
