I’m Leon and I’m an aspiring journalist. I am about to graduate from the University of Canberra with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and Media (Journalism) and I am very excited to start my career. During my time at UC, I was able to do an internship at the Canberra Times where I worked on multiple projects, including both assigned tasks and original ideas. I have skills in writing engaging articles, news writing and audio media production which I honed at uni, but I’m still always looking to improve.
I am particularly passionate about feature writing! Over the last three years, I have met and written about some of the most interesting people out there. From competitive eaters to Holocaust survivors. I love finding and telling the stories that are important, unique and compelling. I believe that finding stories and generating ideas is the area that I have shown the most improvement in since my first year.
