A BBC News 24 presenter and former Weston College student returned to her roots to give an inspiring talk to media students about her career.
Sophie Long was raised in Weston and attended Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College before taking her A-levels.
After training at Falmouth she worked for Reuters, ITN and BBC regional centres before her post with BBC News 24.
Sophie said: “Facilities at the college have improved so much - I wish I was a student and could do it all again. I enjoyed coming back and encouraging them to work hard to achieve their ambitions and consider going to university.”
