So I’ve decided to do little profiles on the team. I keep talking about these people and might have pictures up of some, but want everybody to get to know the awesome individuals I have shared the year with.
It’s a bit tense in the newsroom right now, with most people finishing off their in-depth projects. I managed to find one focused lady who was done and dusted to humor me. Miss Prelene Singh (aka Pre or Pre-Pre when we’re feeling extra silly).
*Disclaimer from Prelene: “If you had told me about this interview I would probably have different answers. people are going to think I’m so dumb.”
Me: How would you describe your outfit/style for day?
Prelene: This morning I actually thought about what I would wear. I was happy and relieved to be done with my in-depth so I’m wearing orange to show that. Before this course style used to be important to me but it’s just gone down the drain, 10 steps back this year.
Me: On to the more serious, are you sure about this journalism thing?
Prelene: Yes. As a journalist you get to experience the world as no one else can or ever will.
Me: If you weren’t doing what you doing this, what would you be doing?
Prelene: *laughs* Um if I could come back as another person, I’d totally come back as Guiliana Rancic. Jokes. I’d come back as a writer, just an entertainment writer.
Me: How have you found your honours year?
Prelene: Let’s put it this way, I would have lost more if I had not done this course.
Me: What’s been the most challenging thing and the most rewarding thing for you this year?
Prelene: The most challenging would have to be keeping my perseverance and dealing with the different personalities on the daily.
The most rewarding is being recognised for the hard work I’ve done.
Me: Where will you be next year and what will you be doing?
Prelene: I have no idea *laughs*
Me: How would you describe #teamvuvu in three words?
Prelene: Talented, loud and unique.
