About me

I’m currently working as a freelance journalist, focusing on community and social journalism. I love highlighting communities in the press that don’t get representation in the media, and want to continue that through volunteer work.

In much of the work I currently do, I have developed many transferable skills, from writing short and long copy, video, photo and audio editing, and also interviewing skills.

I have a background in music, having graduated with a music degree in 2021. While any work I do in music currently focuses on music journalism, I have a strong belief in the importance of music education for young people, and the many skills you can take from that, whether that be social skills, memory skills and even empathy.

What am I looking for

I am looking for a job where I can exercise creative practices e.g. writing, photo, video and audio editing while advocating for a good cause. I would also be interested in fundraising and community roles as that is an area I am wanting to develop skills in.
