Hi, my name is Amberlene Booth and I am interning at the Lithgow Mercury.
I am in my second year of university studying the Bachelor of Sports Media with a major in journalism at Charles Sturt University, Bathurst.
I have a passion for sport, especially basketball, swimming and athletics. I also enjoy writing which is what motivated me to undertake my degree.
After I graduate, I hope to become a sports journalist. I am also looking forward to next year's Olympic Games which I think will be full of excitement.
I am half way through my internship with two weeks completed and two more to go.
It has been a rewarding experience and I am learning many valuable journalistic skills. I look forward to continuing to learn and further exploring the sports journalism industry.
So please don't be shy, be sure to come and say hi if you see me out and about.
