Overseas assignment for media student

The Presidents Palace in Warsaw

A MEDIA student has returned from her first overseas assignment where she worked on the anniversary story of a tragic air disaster.

Sylvia Goldych, who has won a place at Bradford University despite learning English just four years ago, reported from Poland on the 2010 air disaster which claimed the life of the Polish President Lech Kaczynski.

In the lead up to the memorial Sylvia, who is studying a Btec national certificate in media TV and film at Darlington College, visited Narszanskie Ponazki cemetery where most of the victims were buried.

The 19-year-old, of Darlington, said: “When I stood next to the huge gravestone with all 94 names of the victims, I felt so sad. I lit a candle and left some flowers and then tried to talk to people who were there.

“Mainly I spoke to young people about it and about how they felt; there are very mixed views about what happened and nobody really knows.”

Sylvia has given all her photographs and written reports to her uncle, a freelance journalist working in Warsaw, who will be releasing the article to the local media.

This was the first live project abroad that Sylvia has worked on and she hopes the experience will stand her in good stead for a career in journalism.

Sylvia said: “I now realise to be a good journalist it is so important to do a lot of research to find out the facts and also to get the right picture for the report.

“I know it was a tragedy but I enjoyed my experience. It has made me realise more than ever that this is what I want to do as a career and I am going to continue studying to get there.”
