Everyone at Young Post knows Joy Pamnani. Loads of Young Post readers from schools all over Hong Kong know the PLK Ngan Po Ling College student, as her name appears regularly in the newspaper. That's because Joy has made more than 100 contributions to Young Post in the past year.

Joy gobbles up everything Young Post has to offer, as long as no animals are harmed - she is a huge vegetarian advocate. She's written cover stories, features, workshop reports, reviews and news. She's a regular contributor to our Top 10 page, takes part in Face Off and Talking Points, and even had a great run in the Brain Game competition.

This is why she was named the Junior Reporter of the Year at Young Post's Junior Reporter Awards 2014 on Saturday at Hong Kong Disneyland - for being an all-rounder.

Yong Post editor Susan Ramsay perfectly described it. "What does it take to become Junior Reporter of the Year?" said Ramsay at the ceremony. "You must be able to write a good story, of course. Show us story ideas and work on them until they are right, and never, never, never give up. The Junior Reporter of the Year has all these qualities."

When Joy's name was announced she was relieved her hard work had been recognised. "At first, I just wanted to enjoy the event with my friends," said the Junior Reporter of the Year. "But when Sue was talking about the qualities that make a Junior Reporter of the Year, I thought 'hey, I do all that'. That's when I was starting to get anxious over whether I'd actually win it. And I did!"
