Journalism, 2021

I have a passion for broadcast journalism and enjoy covering stories about societal issues such as gender inequality and homelessness. I am coming to the end of my degree with the University of Canberra, studying a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism/International Studies. I am excited to start my career in journalism and to continue telling stories that matter.

I have industry experience including an internship with the Seriously Social Podcast, and a project with ABC Radio Canberra. I also completed an internship with WIN News Canberra, where I was awarded the 2021 WIN News Peter Leonard Scholarship for Journalism.
