Jade on air with Youth Radio Rocks

Jade Canning is a radio presenter with a few friends. My friends and I recently entered a radio show for the Money For Life challenge. Our show was fun, creative and chatty, it communicated to listeners how to save some pennies. We were placed as one of seven runners up out of 150 entries and our show was delivered to a total of 44,933 people – amazing!

Cabot Circus as its great for shopping and especially good if you have a student discount card! Nando’s – who doesn’t love a good nando’s?

Websites I love

Twitter, Tumblr, and Buzzfeed

Parts of the world I love

Anywhere hot and that has a beach

Things I love doing

Travelling, listening to music and chilling with my friends

Most worn item of clothing and why?

Black skinny jeans, they go with everything and are comfy yet stylish

Who would you most like to have a drink with, and why?

David Attenborough, I would love to know how he gets the amazing shots of the worlds and its wildlife. I’m sure he has some amazing stories to tell.

If you could only take three possessions to a desert island, what would they be?

A scrapbook which is filled with photo’s of my family and memories of my first months of university. A mobile phone (even if I don’t have signal.. I’ve got loads of music and games to keep me amused for a while). A Lighter – to start a fire for food or to boil gross things out of water for me to drink

If you could swap places with someone for the day, who would it be and why?

The Queen!

What’s your proudest achievement so far?

One of my proudest achievements is reaching the England Finals for our entry to the Money For Life challenge. Another achievement that I am proud of is getting accepted into Bournemouth University to study a degree in Law

What would you call your autobiography?

‘Just Jade’

Why I love being part of Youth Radio Rocks

Endless amounts of fun, laughter and good hearted banter! Being on the radio should be fun and it certainly is at Youth Radio Rocks. I like to be creative and produce things which are different and chatty, reaching out to younger age groups. Youth Radio Rocks definitely accommodates for that.
