The second Hounslow’s Promise Masterclass hosted BBC journalist Jasmin Buttar and the Financial Times’ Peter Campbell. They were quizzed by the young attendees and the Chair of Hounslow’s Promise, Seema Malhotra MP. The two high profile journalists spoke about their career journey, the changing shape of the journalism industry and provided a bigger perspective of the big challenges journalism faces today. The discussion provided attendees with a pragmatic understanding of the ever-changing world of journalism, with a local student describing it as “an honest and eye opening experience about what it means to be a journalist”.
