Yes it was! I have a BSc. in Journalism and Mass Communication, but Inever really got much practice in the University.
Mostly because of the quality of our education here in Cameroon. Our lecturers did their best with what they had, but we all knew we lacked a more hands-on knowledge capital.
Your piece is quite informative.
I create a lot of content in various formats and I’ve had to learn on the job. The way you talk about difficult questions and loving the process is very true: without an innate drive, things get really hard.
I’ve learned a lot about interviewing from listening to podcasts ( my favorite is The Unmistakable Creative with Srinivas Rao as host), and writing by reading a lot.
Especially here on Medium. As for videos, well, I easily binge watch Gary Vee and other Casey Neistat looking content.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. I enjoyed the read.
I hope you keep it up.
