LOCAL Caitlyn Leggett has found her life’s calling – journalism.
So much so that she has just returned from six months at university in the United States having gained a scholarship from La Trobe University.
Born in Mansfield in 1993, she attended Mansfield Secondary College from year 10.
During her year 11 studies, Caitlyn took up a School Based Apprenticeship with the Mansfield Courier.
“I was attracted to it because I liked writing and also photography,” she explained.
“I completed the apprenticeship over 2010/11 and then my VCE.
“Then came a gap year with three jobs – the Courier, the bakery and Foodworks – before a month’s travel in Europe.”
