“I joined Youth Radio Rocks because I have always had an interest in being involved in a radio station and gaining work in the media industry. I had done some work experience with Bath FM then took on a voluntary role at another community radio station but it wasn’t for me as there was no real support and having seen a real station operate, I found it very amateurish.
When I heard about Youth Radio Rocks I was very interested and I feel already from the training and help, I have gained leadership skills as well as improving vocal skills on air and also editing skills. Also from just the past few months, Youth Radio Rocks has enabled me to meet different people with different backgrounds and I have now made some very good friends.
The one major highlight was specific help with my literary skills and that has helped me in my quest for full time employment which I now have. Youth Radio Rocks has been of positive benefit to me in many different ways and I’m glad I got involved.”
