Candice Fernandez Winner 2016

 

THE WINNER OF THE SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL OF NOTTINGHAM
STUDENT JOURNALIST OF THE YEAR AWARD

As part of her final year project, Nottingham Trent Broadcast Journalism student Candice Fernandez created an online feature that explored the different attitudes of Muslim women living in Britain and how they reconcile their faith with modern living.

Members of Soroptimist International of Nottingham selected it as their top piece of journalism created by students at the Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism at Nottingham Trent University.

This is the fourth year SI Nottingham has awarded a prize to a student journalist for a 3rd year project looking at women’s issues in the media in line with their goal of enabling women and girls to achieve their potential.

The members of SI Nottingham thought that it was not often there was the opportunity to hear the opinions of women minorities, and Candice was to be congratulated on bringing their voice to our attention.

Candice’s article was published on the student journalism news site www.cbjspotlight.co.uk.

SI Nottingham would like to thank all staff in the department of Broadcasting and Journalism for their support for this award, in particular Carole Fleming Director of the Centre for Broadcast Journalism
