Meet our new JC interns

For 2018/19 we have two brilliant new interns; Louisa Cavell and Lily Hewitson, joining the Journalists’ Charity team. They will be managing our social media, updating the website and attending events throughout the year. Here’s a little bit about them…

Louisa Cavell

lou-profile-picLouisa Cavell is a journalist and writer currently working as the Staff Writer at the Professional Publishers Association (PPA). Before this she was the Digital Intern at the Royal Television Society and her work has also been published in The Guardian, Little White Lies, Screen Daily, Stylist and Emerald Street.

Louisa recently completed her MA in Magazine Journalism at City, University of London and prior to this gained her undergraduate degree in Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies from Cardiff University. She has had a varied career beginning in the film and television industry shortly after graduating in 2012, working on productions such as Doctor Who, Broadchurch, Sherlock, Stella, Da Vinci’s Demons and The Crown. After this she worked as a marketing executive at an advertising agency and an office administrator at Shortlist Media. She is also a fully trained make-up artist.

Louisa enjoys writing about lifestyle and beauty, films and television, as well what’s going on in the world of publishing. She is originally from Wales but now lives in London. In her spare time, she enjoys baking, reading, journaling, calligraphy and discovering new parts of London through long walks around the city.

Lily Hewitson

img_e0804Lily is a Journalism student at City, University of London and is now in her final year. In between her studies, Lily has done work with Channel 4, the BBC and ITV Wales, but most recently she has been presenting for her local TV channel Cardiff Live. Over the summer Lily did some of the only English spoken broadcast reporting at the national Eistedfodd in her home town of Cardiff, working alongside S4C, BBC Cymru and ITV Wales. There were many paths that Lily could have taken towards her career, her love of art was one, her 13-year vocational ballet training was another, but she stayed true to journalism and is pursuing her aspiration to become a broadcast journalist and presenter. Lily enjoys interviewing and reporting on local issues. In the coming year, working with Journalists’ Charity, Lily will be deciding whether to pursue a job or take the Broadcast Journalism Masters course at Cardiff University.
