It's my story: helping care-experienced young people give effective media interviews

Remind young people that the media needs them!

It can be helpful to finish a media training session by reminding young people that without people to interview there would be no interviews!

Slide 19 reiterates many points you will have made earlier in the training, but are worth making again.

The media needs you

  • You know more about this than they do
  • You are a ‘guest’ on their programme
  • You are as important as any politician, celebrity or royal because you are you!
  • Audiences love to hear people speaking about things they care about and believe it
