Interns' Testimonial

Editorial Internship

"My Life with The Star"

By Sumisha Naidu

Sumisha Naidu I am a third-year Bachelor of Arts (Media and Communications) student at the University of Melbourne in Australia and I had the opportunity to intern at the Sunday Star in January 2010 during my summer break. The editors and journalists whom I worked with during my time there were very supportive and helpful and thanks to them, I gained invaluable insights into how a national news publication operates. They made an effort to include me in the entire process of producing news articles from conception to publication, and as a result my research, interviewing, and writing skills improved. While working on articles, I also had the chance to meet an amazing variety of people from young Malaysian millionaires to politicians.

Overall, interning at The Star was a great introduction to print journalism and it has inspired me to seriously pursue a career in the field. I would recommend it to anyone who has similar ambitions.
