3. I just have completed my first year and within one year I learnt being confident, organised, skilled in different softwares for designing Infography, Posters, I also learnt photography, videography, TV and Radio Production. As a student of Pondicherry University I could know the kind of working a journalist has and also how to be ready in time. There were different workshop organised by the department that always taught us to be person of job, no matter whatever is the time if there is any news of human interest then they have to step out of their comfort zone and do the ground reporting. When I was a beginner I felt like I can't continue the course anymore for the kind for hectic pressure we were put on  but at the end of semester only I realised those are the shaping tools used on me that really will give a bright future..
