Student Affairs at Al Falah University organized a seminar presented by writer and journalist Hazza Al Shehhi to discuss his career in media, the challenges he faced and the skills a successful journalist must have. The Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. Samer Abdelhadi and students from the College of Mass Communication attended the seminar.
Mr. Al Shehhi talked about the importance of media in our daily and practical lives and how media evolved in terms of impact on society and the expeditious delivery of news and information particularly with the proliferation of social media platforms that is accessible to the public.
He also talked about his personal experiences and how an academic specialization in media helped his career because he already developed and honed the skills, he would need to deliver the news to his audience. Continuous training is also important and determining the media practitioner’s strength and weakness would be a sensible self-investment.
