The best thing that has happened to me? Now this is a difficult one! The first thing that comes to mind would be winning work experience at Sugar magazine and More! magazine. Both of these were incredible way to learn about the industry and experience, first hand what it would be like to work in a magazine. I entered separate competitions for them, and won both. I had a week’s work experience at Sugar magazine where I was shown around the different areas, interviewed people, wrote articles and created pages for the magazine. For More! magazine, I won a days experience at the magazine. I was able to speak to people from all areas of the magazine and find out how they have to go to where they are, as well as trying out all of their jobs.
This was a great experience for me, and the fact that I won it made it even better!
