I am a third year student at the University of Canberra, studying a Bachelor of Communications and Media, with a specialist major in Journalism.
I am passionate about creating stories that inspire and uplift. I believe in constructive approaches to journalism, by not just announcing a problem, but seeking solutions. I enjoy writing and creating feature stories for different media platforms such as radio and print.
Through my time at university, my work has aired on ABC Radio Canberra, UCFM and been published on the OWL. I have also produced a feature audio story focusing on nutrition after a dementia diagnosis, that has been nominated for an award from the Journalism Education & Research Association of Australia.
During my degree I have undertaken a 3-week full-time internship with WIN News Canberra as part of the Peter Leonard WIN News Scholarship. Through this I produced video news packages to air each evening on the local news and am very grateful for the experience to learn how a fast-paced deadline driven news room operates.
I am excited for my future career in the media industry and am ready to throw myself into professional work.
