Five students from the University of Malta will join the British Council throughout 2018 to report on Valletta’s Capital of Culture programme. Through stories, videos, pictures, working with the British Council and with local, national and international press and media, they’ll tell us what it means to have artists, performers, creators and thinkers from around Europe and the world arrive on your doorstep.
My name is Naomi Rebecca Mifsud and I’m in my second year of a Communications degree at the University of Malta.
In addition to being passionate about writing stories and about events, I’m fascinated by the rich Maltese culture and history. I believe in the importance of bringing to light the colourful stories of the Maltese people, and the way they live here on such a small island, which in turn also marks their identity.
I heard stories from my grandparents and my parents from their times as children and how they saw Malta evolving into the country it is nowadays. I believe in sharing stories about Malta and local talent. Also, I believe in raising awareness that Malta is not just a destination for sunny skies and beaches, but also a country of artistic and poetic potential coming from enthusiastic Maltese hearts.
