Bournemouth University students wins chance to meet Justin Bieber
NOW I’M A BELIEBER: Joseph Kent, Bournemouth University student, who won the chance to meet Justin Bieber
A JOURNALISM student from Bournemouth University has won the chance to travel to Miami and meet teen pop sensation Justin Bieber.
Third year BA (Hons) Multimedia Journalism student Joseph Kent beat entries from around the world to win the competition, run by Adidas NEO.
The prize includes an all-expenses paid trip to Miami at the end of the month, and the chance to meet Justin Bieber after one of his concerts.
Joseph, who will then blog about the experience, said: “It is the trip that I am more excited for – I have never been to Miami and it sounds amazing. I’ve already been checking the weather reports.
“The great thing is that I don’t really have an opinion on Justin Bieber, so I can go to the concert and form a justified opinion on him.”
To get through the first round of the competition, Joseph had to send in a photo of the face he would pull if he found out he had won.
Joseph, 21, who is from Woking and lives in Winton while studying, said: “It was a mixture of surprise and disbelief, with a little glimmer of ‘oh my gosh’.
“I’m sure it wasn’t the face I actually pulled when I found out I’d won.”
For the second round, entrants were sent a rucksack and then had to blog about what they would put in it for their trip to Miami.
Joseph created a stop motion video of the items – including his camera, spare lens, passport and shorthand notebook – magically appearing to put themselves in the bag to one of Justin Bieber’s songs.
