Also for any budding journalists at uni etc get involved in the media societies at your unis. I used to write for london student on current affairs and it was really good fun even though i never did follow the journalism career route. Its a way of getting more experience and builidng your portfolio. It was also a good stepping stone had i wished to go into the field later. Lets see some more sikh editors and producers!

I mean real sikhs, not gurpreet bhatti part II.
