I was 16, and my first "serious" girlfriend dragged me to Cardiff to march against cruelty to animals, and the welsh news people were there to film it. That evening, even though I had tried to hide from the cameras, there we all were, for my parents to see.
I've also been on the radio, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it was for. (Must have been really important, lol).
As for a paper, not yet, I'm still waiting for my 5 mins of fame, lol.
