About the budding journalists
Hannah Leigh is a year 9 student at the British International School of Houston. Ever since she was little she has had a keen interest in literature and journalism, so she jumped at the chance to be a student journalist for the Global Orchestra. She also loves music, so this chance seemed a perfect fit for her. She is extremely excited to meet everyone, improve her skills as a journalist and be in her favourite city in the USA.
Margareta Durovcikova is an aspiring writer and journalist from Slovakia. She just finished Year 11 and can't wait to go to New York. Reading, writing and film-making are her favourite ways of spending free time but she definitely wouldn't refuse a movie marathon. She hopes to get to know as many people as possible in New York and her ultimate goal is to capture the atmosphere and spirit of the Global Orchestra.
