Emily Jamison of Limavady High School has won a coveted role to write for The Guardian newspaper after beating off tough competition from pupils at schools throughout the whole of the UK.
Emily won a place on a project that will see her travel to London and interview Paralympic athletes and then report on their challenges and success for the newspaper.
The position was created in a bid to increase awareness of the Paralympics and Emily’s published piece is expected to be exposed to some five million readers.
Emily will also attend the Paralympics closing ceremony, the Limavady Chronicle reported, after which she will be trained by journalists at The Guardian.
Her by-line will feature in the Saturday edition of the paper during August.
