BTC News - Julie Etchingham

It's not every day that a pair of teenagers get the chance to grill one of the UK's best known newsreaders. But that's exactly what happened in September when two of our girls from the Silver Girlhood to Womanhood programme at City Heights E-act Academy had the opportunity to interview Julie Etchingham.

Julie is an ITV news at Ten Presenter and was the first girl from her school to attend Cambridge University. She's gone on to become the first woman to co-anchor a UK election night programme and the first woman to win the Television Society's presenter of the year award. She is the perfect person to encourage our young women to aspire for greatness, break barriers and challenge negative societal expectations!

Watch this short clip of what happened when we grilled Julie here, full interview coming soon!
