Congratulations to talented sixth form media student Alex F, who took part in BBC Young Reporter last week, voicing issues within the mainstream media along with industry professionals from the BBC and Channel 4.

Alex’s question was chosen to be read out and discussed by the professionals. She drew on her personal experiences to ask why certain issues are under-represented within the media or have negative representations. Alex’s question: “Do you have any plans to show invisible disabilities more on mainstream media, because I believe it’s extremely important to.” Alex is very passionate to try and attempt to help those who feel marginalised in society in the media.
