A new reporter has joined the North Norfolk News team at Cromer
Sabah Meddings, 25, has just completed a four-month training course at the Press Association training school in Newcastle and is looking forward to working in the area.
'I chose journalism because it is exciting. Every day is different and you meet local people from different walks of life,' she said.
Sabah – whose name means morning in Arabic – was born in Dublin and went to school in Norwich at Avenues Middle and the Hewett.
After a gap year as a nanny in London, she went to Aberdeen University to study politics and international relations. She has done work experience in the News' parent company's head office in Norwich, as well as a spell at our sister office in Great Yarmouth before her training.

She also likes running and spending time with her large family which comprises four sisters, a brother, a half brother and half sister.
