BRATs in JB last March.

THE final BRATs workshop of the year will be held on August 14-17, and you can still be a part of it!

This time, we’ll be taking the 40 successful applicants (aged 16-19) for awesome field assignments all around Penang. And with the help of editors, journalists, photographers and videographers from The Star, you will learn to produce some inspiring stories – which will be published right here!

And that’s not all. After you complete the four-day workshop, you’ll get to join the BRATs alumni, where you can choose to continue developing your journalistic skills by taking up REAL assignments from the R.AGE team! Members of the BRATs alumni have interviewed celebrities like Leona Lewis, The Wanted, Christina Perri, Greyson Chance, B.o.B, and many more!
