The Jump-Start at the Channel Seven’s Morning Program
After coming back to my home country in September of 2020 I struggled to find a job related to the TV journalism. During the festive days of December, I got a message in one of the WhatsApp chats saying “The Channel Seven is looking for an editor of world news”. I immediately applied and went to the office for the interview as I met all the qualification requirements. Luckily, the head of the just created morning program accepted my candidacy and I got my first job on telly. At that time, I didn’t feel that 2021 would be a year of surprises and challenges for such a junior specialist like me. But during those 14 months of “Оян, Qazaqstan!” (means Wake up, Kazakhstan) program I have gained a lot of experience as an editor of World News department, translator, TV host of a two-hour live morning show, reviewer of two Olympic Games, producer of the TV stories about themes like entrepreneurs, sign language teaching and animal care and protection. More at the link below (on a photo).
Journalistic projects in the UK
While studying at the School of Journalism, Media and Culture of Cardiff University, I created a number of media projects. One of those works I did was my experience as a reporter for the local news website called Cardiff News Plus. I did radio and TV reports on various topics in South Wales region and worked as a producer in the studio. As a final dissertation project, I presented a radio documentary program “From East Turkestan to Western Europe”.
