It?s your Shout
By EMMA CORNFORD
WHEN Zeta Bourke finished Year 10 and left school, she wasn't sure what to do with herself.
She had the general idea of going into childcare, but the 17year-old's career path has taken a distinct turn since she began working with Shout Out, the Clarence Valley's soon-to-belaunched youth magazine.
"It's been excellent. I'm really excited because people have told me they liked my photos and it's been so exciting seeing them in the magazine," Zeta said.
Her work has also helped build her portfolio, and next week Zeta has an interview lined up with a photographer.
"And next year I'm moving to Brisbane so hopefully I can go to college or uni and get into photography from there."
Shout Out co-ordinator James Patterson said helping young people find hidden talents and developing their portfolios were part of what the magazine was about.
Shout Out is a Clarence Valley Arts project funded by the NSW Government's area assistance program.
It will be officially launched at 2.30pm during YouthFest 2006 on April 1, at Frank McGuren Park in Grafton.
