Reporter quizzed by pupils at Snaresbrook school

As a journalist, my day-to-day life involves interviewing anyone from councillors to charity representatives and concerned residents.
But the tables were turned when I was quizzed by a dozen pupils about my career.
I visited Forest School, in College Place, Snaresbrook, on Friday to talk to young members of its “Press Gang” group, as well as GCSE students and sixth formers.
After discussing how I got into journalism and my experiences over the last two years at the Recorder, I took questions from the pupils.
Topics ranged from how I make my stories interesting, to the type of articles I work on and what I do if there are no big stories around.
One of the pupils also asked whether I was nervous the first time I did vox pops during work experience.
