Former Colleague, friend, and Psychology Research Assistant Sonya Kaminski’s Story: American couple change wedding plans amid Coronavirus pandemic
Sonya Kaminski’s Testimonial:
“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Jessica both personally and professionally for years and continue to be impressed with her skills and accomplishments. When she approached me about capturing my story, I was both honoured and excited for a chance to share such an important event that happened in my life. It goes without saying that one’s wedding is one of the most important events in a person’s life and takes a monumental amount of planning and preparation. For my husband and I, it was also a quite stressful event, as the COVID-19 pandemic began just months before our wedding date. I was happy to share all that this meant for us with Jessica, so that we could hopefully inform and inspire others who were in the same boat. Jessica took so much time and care when interviewing us and putting together our story – and I am happy to have this special (albeit chaotic) time in my life captured into words and video. Now, I’ll be able to share my story with others in a way that would not have been possible. Jessica is not only passionate about the field of journalism, but her genuine care for those she works with is evident. She is so kind and has a magnetic energy making everyone she meets love her immediately. I look forward to working with her again in the future!'” – Sonya Kaminski

Josh Ault’s Testimonial:
“I’ve known Jessica for a long time. She worked with me as an intern when I was a reporter at WATE-TV in Knoxville, TN.
Jessica is a very hardworking and fair journalist. She is compassionate and always strives to get both sides of the story. If you want a solid story, she is someone who can get the job done.
She did a great job in expressing my thoughts on being a teacher during the pandemic.”

“Her strong ability to work on sensitive topics, such as ‘Sexual Assault’ and issues around ‘Rough Sleepers’, shows her ability to tackle hard topics and bring attention to the public on important subjects.” – Colleague & Media Operator for Sky News, Fahima Khatun
Former Colleague Fahima Khatun’s Story: Collaborative radio two-way report on the ‘Reality of Rough Sleepers’
Fahima Khatun’s Testimonial:
“I’ve had the pleasure to work with Jessica Quinlan on different projects of her own and have had her help me with my own projects.
We met during our Master program at Birmingham City University, and she straight away gave off confidence and was very approachable.
Her strong ability to work on sensitive topics, such as ‘Sexual Assault’ and issues around ‘Rough Sleepers’, shows her ability to tackle hard topics and bring attention to the public on important subjects.
When speaking with her about the topics she is working on, I can always hear her passion for wanting to bring stories to the public. She is always keen to work with others and knows how to be professional, but she is also someone I enjoy working with because she is good company to have.
Along with finding good stories, she always does her best to present the stories as strongly as she can – filming, editing and reporting the stories, which shows she is a multitalented professional.
I always enjoy working with her and look forward to watching her prosper.”
