International internship student – know more, do more at Blues on Broadbeach


Blues on Broadbeach music festival is an Australia’s largest free music festival and my first time getting involved in a western culture festival.

As an international student, this internship is a precious experience for me to learn about the culture of the West and the differences between Asia and Australia.

During these four days – 19th to 22nd May – I was part of the team of internship students producing news and background stories about the Blues on Broadbeach festival.

Stephen Stockwell – the course convenor – has assisted me a lot with editing and teaching me about the western music festival culture.

Writing stories and news has kept me busy these last four days at the blues festival.

I realised that the only way to improve your professional communication skills is to do more research and practise your writing skills.

“Know more, do more” is the Griffith University slogan.

Griffith University has provided an incredible environment and opportunities for me to do this internship.

The professional communication skills will definitely help my future career.
