Hello! This is Jessica Damiana. Last year, Narendra Hutomo, Annisa Meidiana, Jennifer Sidharta and I worked at #WPFD2016 #YouthNewsroom in Helsinki. We were called #Freezine.
You can find our articles here (http://lipsus.kompas.com/…/world.press.freedom.day.2016…) and here (http://wpfd2016.com/…/shut-speak-freedom-speech-press…/).
My first Youth Newsroom experience was great! Met a lot of journos and attended many sessions about #PressFreedom. I never thought I could see Christiane Amanpour & Maria Ressa in person. You see, as journalism students, attending this event will encourage us to be brave and critical about #FreedomofExpression.
We arrived during the May Day celebration. #Vappu was a very unique experience since here in Indonesia, May Day is usually celebrated with demonstration and long march. In Finland, everyone celebrates it by having picnic in Kaivopuisto Park!
In September 2016, my campus, Multimedia Nusantara University co-hosted Jakarta World Forum for Media Development along with Indonesian Press Council and Global Forum for Media Development. (phew! that was mouthful)
We took this opportunity to create #Mugscope, to get a hands-on experience on how to manage a newsroom. (http://mugscope.lontarnews.id/category/gfmd/)
I became the youngest person to speak at #JWFMD2016 (https://2016jakartaworldforumonmediadeve.sched.com/…). So yeah, I’m kind of a big deal 😀
I can’t wait to see you all and hear your stories about press freedom in your country <3! Short description of me: I love Indomie. (go google it you won't regret it) #VoiceofMillennials will be my third #YouthNewsroom. By the way can you tell that I'm the social media editor?
