The weather is cool today and in the outdoor courtyard of the Uweza center, journalism club members are having their session. Seated on the brown benches and listening attentively are some of the members as they watch representatives of their groups engaging in a press conference exercise.
Today's session includes 32 participants. As part of their learning experience, the session is aimed at enhancing their skills as journalists in the near future and providing an example of what they can undergo should they find themselves in a media press conference.

Our press conference was held by club members acting as researchers. Club members were divided into groups acting as journalists and each group chose representatives tasked with asking questions. The exercise required maximum participation for each group to earn points. The researchers played the role of explaining in detail their research findings on a controversial topic at hand touching on the social aspect of life. This topic was: “Annoying habits that women dislike in men.”
