Welcome to our new #commedia13 volunteers!

We had lots and lots of applications for people wanting to be involved in International Community Media Day but unfortunately we did not need all of you. If you haven’t been chosen then you can sit back with your feet up, relax and enjoy the day anyway.

I’d like to welcome those who were chosen, and write a little bit about them and what they are going to be doing.

My name is Gemma Clark and I am studying Multimedia Journalism at Glasgow Caledonian University. I have experience in freelance work for several student and online magazines as well as a local daily paper. Generally I just want to investigate and let people know the truth. If there is a story to be heard, I’ll listen. I’ll write it and tell the world given the chance because people deserve to know as much as possible about everything possible.
