ALL the stories and photos you see here today were produced by 34 talented teenagers, who worked together under one roof for four exciting – and exhausting – days in Raub, Pahang.
The 34 participants of our BRATs Raub young journalist camp were among the best young aspiring journalists we could find from across the country, so don’t be too surprised if their stories are like, y’know, totally awesome!
We really have to congratulate them for an amazing job.
They worked super hard on these stories, and if they represent the future of Malaysian journalism, our profession would be in very good hands indeed.
We also wanna give a shoutout to the journalists who ran the camp – R.AGE editor Ian Yee, R.AGE journalist Lim May Lee, Star2 entertainment journalist Kenneth Chaw and veteran Star photojournalist Samuel Ong.
Ian, May Lee and Kenneth each led a team of participants, and you’ll find each team’s stories on these pages, starting with #TeamMayLee’s right here.
Each team was supported by three “senior” BRATs – Clarissa Say, Tam Xueh Wei and Ashvin Singh Tiwana.
All the participants will now join us as BRATs teen journalists, so do watch out for their bylines and follow their progress both here and at rage.com.my/brats!
