English student Emma Fowler (14) is enjoying being part of the Young Reporters' Scheme at the Grimsby Telegraph.

So far, the Year 10 student, who is working towards completion of her Duke of Edinburgh Silver award, has written and had three articles published: Food – do we really know what we're eating? 5K Your Way, an article encouraging cancer patients and survivors to remain active during and beyond their treatment; and Misconceptions of Feminism.

Emma enjoys writing and the opportunity to meet with others her age to discuss current events. She heard about the writing scheme through Duke of Edinburgh.

"Young Reporters has been a great experience for me and my writing skills have really improved," said Emma.

Charlotte Hodgson, Curriculum Leader for English at Tollbar Academy, said: "Emma is putting her writing skills to great use discussing topics that affect a lot of people. This is a fantastic opportunity for her to further her English skills and to develop as a writer."
