I left GIJ and I couldn’t even write a single report so the certificate was rubbish. I learned on the job when I started to write and learned to tell a story. I learned to be on camera, I learned but yet I had a degree in Journalism. A degree in Communication Studies so that foundation is crap.”
Bridget explained further that being a journalist does not require attending a journalism school. She cited ace journalism Nana Aba Anamoah, Kwame Sefa Kayi, and Serwah Amihere as examples.

She told the host, “Nana Aba went to Journalism school but she didn’t start as a journalist. Serwaa Amihere and Kwami Sefa Kayi don’t have a journalism background, so some of the best journalists this country has produced didn’t have a journalism background and yet they are some of the best we look up to”.
