Meet a Youth FM Graduate
Meet Bayley, former Youth FM Radio Presenter and freelance cinematographer.
Bayley Broome-Peake, completed the Youth FM Program while in Year 10 and went on to become a mentor at YouthFM.
Bayley believes the Program played a significant role in developing her confidence to pursue a career in the film industry.
Reflecting on the experience, Bayley recalls it being an exciting and creative outlet that taught her about team work, presenting, interviewing and radio in general.
Whether you go on to a career in radio, or something else like me, you’ll learn life skills that can’t be replaced.
She says, “It helped me in many ways but the biggest thing was public speaking. Even though you’re not standing in front of a crowd, it can be daunting to do community radio. I’m indebted to YouthFM for making me a confident speaker, and that helps in any career.”
Bayley is now living in Sydney, working in the commercial and creative film production industry. For anyone considering the YouthFM program, she says, it’s an amazing opportunity.
