I am Sonal Gupta, a Junior Producer working for an online news portal called The Quint.
As a producer, I create video content highlighting the day-to-day news/events. I also produce feature videos which involves working on exclusive and unusual stories.
My job also involves working as a reporter where I pitch story ideas, go for shoots and handle the post-production.
I am a MA Graduate in Multimedia Journalism from the University of Westminster,London.
I aim to have a progressive career in Broadcast/Online Journalism.
Being an active explorer of diverse fields of journalism I am looking for opportunities that provide immense exposure and help me improve my potential through hands on experience.
Being an administrator of my own life since a very early age I took the firm decision of being a journalist.
I have always been a very passionate student of journalism who believes in planning every step to her dream of being a successful journalist with extreme caution and practicality.
In the UK I have worked for media organisations like BBC World Service,The Times, London Evening Standard, Goodthingsmagazine and covered the election campaign for Sky News.
In my home country India, I have worked for lead broadcast channels like Headlines Today, IBN7 and Sahara.
My media experience has given me the required knowledge and strength to strive as a journalist in the current times.
My keen interest lies in working as a news presenter or taking up any task related to a Newsroom.
Through this blog I aim to discuss issues that have not gained much attention. The idea is to explore a different side of the story.
