Kate Adie addresses an auditorium of 300 media studies students at Cambridge International School (CIS(, part of the GEMS Education network of schools. The renowned journalist and former correspondent for BBC News tells students memorable war stories, and that no story is worth dying for. “If you go to the extent to die in getting a story, then you fail as a journalist because you don’t get the story out, journalism is about retelling the story to the world,” Adie said. She also told budding journalists in the audience that they have got to be curious, energetic, interested in everything and adaptable, to become successful journalists.
