TWIF NEWS’ Editor-in-Chief has graduated as the 2019 most outstanding student in the University of Buea’s Department of Journalism and Mass Communication(JMC).
Despite the long-standing unresolved armed conflict in Anglophone Cameroon, Paul Njie worked extremely hard amid an atmosphere of tension, to top his class.
“I feel proud because this success did not come easy; proud because those who journeyed with me also succeeded,” he said.
Paul Njie, 21, took upon himself to walk to the occasion in icy rains and the scorching sun.
“The secret behind my success was mere hard work, pertinacity, and collective efforts,” Njie revealed.
As a freshman, Paul Njie was awarded as the Best Level 200 JMC Student at the ASJUB Annual Awards (AANA) 2017. The award winner exalted students to be hardworking, and pay attention to all their school work if they hope to have a similar or greater recognition.
The dynamic journalist has a high savoir-faire for both broadcast and online journalism. His devotedness, flair and love for journalism earned him the position of Editor-in-Chief at TWIF NEWS, an office he has occupied for close to two years.
At the moment, the fresh graduate is a volunteer journalist at Hi TV Buea and a correspondent for US based news organisation, EboniGram. Prior to his graduation, he also worked as a freelance journalist with The Christian Science Monitor, headquartered in the United States of America.
Paul Njie revealed in an exclusive interview with TWIF NEWS that he has recently begun an academic Master’s degree programme in International Relations; an art which he says will broaden his mind in handling global affairs while practising journalism.
