Graduate of Development Journalism (Batch 1)
The three Months Certificate Course in Development Journalism has polished my hidden abilities and opened new doors of opportunities for me. The course not only improved my reporting skills but also enhanced my professional organizational capabilities. The course provided me with very productive opportunities to learn from various sector including the fields of journalism, economy, policy making, writing, editing, and gender.
Soon after the conclusion of the course, I joined UNDP RAHA FATA Secretariat as Behavior Change and Communications Officer and I successfully started my new profession with the vast knowledge and skills acquired and enhanced during the course. Over the course of my profession, I have fully utilized these skills for the development and uplift of my community. I am serving the vulnerable and deserving communities of my native land FATA since the last 3 years under the umbrella of UNDP and FATA Secretariat and playing a very vital role in local development and social cohesion. Undoubtedly, I owe the credit for my success to the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, FATA Development Programme and FATA Secretariat for this wonderful initiative of Development Journalism certificate course.
