The new generation of creative and committed communicators at Guaynabo School

The Marist school in Guaynabo (Puerto Rico) started up two pilot projects in 2023: the news programme ‘Maristas News’ and the podcast ‘Dímelo Masaco’. Both projects are part of the Media Lab, a space dedicated to innovation.

Driven by two mentors (Nicole Schmidl and Juan Ramírez), writing, improvisation and public speaking are some of the many skills that the students learn on a daily basis.

In this space, students have the opportunity to research and expose topics that are interesting to them from the Marist world while learning the work involved in being in front of and behind the cameras.

As the student Víctor Ferrer tells us, this experience “has changed his life and my perspective on journalism”, who also highlights the cooperation between colleagues as one of the most important points of these initiatives.

For her part, student Alexa Cardona points out the importance of having a mentor during this project who encourages them, teaches them “to look beyond and the possibilities that we can offer to use it in our careers”.
