“ I attended a very stimulating course at Media Academy in 2010. My experience was useful and fun. I’m not a video journalist and I have never had the intention of becoming one but what I learned during my course has been successfully applied to other aspects of my activity and of my life.

February, 2013, was my first experience with the Media Academy, SA. What an experience it turned out to be. I had the opportunity of a hands-on training in Video Content Creation and Production with Dominique, the Master Story Teller. Today I work with a team of Researchers and Trainers, to train and impact students and graduates of agricultural science, to become Agric Reporters (as Video Journalists)in Nigeria.

Thanks to Media Academy SA, for the impact made. Really looking forward to more interactions in the months ahead.
