FEATURE writer Tayla Arthur remembers the excitement she felt the first time she saw her name in print.
The former Chinchilla State High School student has recently landed her dream job working in the media industry.
"I originally wanted to be a doctor but decided I could not handle seeing blood each day," Miss Arthur said.
"I was always great at English and enjoyed writing so I thought I would pursue a career in media instead.
"Looking back, it was certainly the correct decision," she said.
Miss Arthur, 20, is currently studying a Bachelor of Journalism and Public Relations at the University of Queensland in Brisbane.
"I am halfway through my degree and I thoroughly enjoy it," she said.
"I have been extremely fortunate because I was offered a fulltime job while still at university.
"My classmates are all still doing internships," she said.
Ms Arthur said she enjoyed her role as a feature writer and designer for APN News and Media, the publishers of The Chronicle.
"I write weekly features which are all very diverse and include shopping, motoring and fashion pieces," she said.
"When I first saw my name in print, it was very exciting.
"Once I finish my degree I certainly want to further my career in media," she said.
