Culture & Heritage, 2023

I am a final year student of the Bachelor of Arts (Culture and Heritage), I aspire to have a career in archives conservation, preservation and records management.

During my time at University of Canberra, I have gained a diverse array of skills and experiences, gained both individually and as part of a team. These include:

  • Assessing the condition of objects in a collection
  • Writing a heritage significance report
  • Navigation and utilisation of online archives
  • Organisation of a collection catalog
  • Cleaning of objects
  • Photography/Metadata
  • Collaborating on team projects


I have also completed a 12 week Internship at the National Museum of Australia 2023. Linked is my portfolio website from the Internship.

My interests outside of culture and heritage include Creative Writing and Forensic Science.

Selected Portfolio

This assignment was to assess an object or place that is important to me. I chose to do a stamp that was gifted to be with my name carved into. The report is attached as the work sample.

This assignment was to select an object in UC Indigenous Collection and find another example in another institution to compare and contrast with.
