My passion for journalism began when I was 7, I was the only one in my year given a speaking role in a play. This 'set the stage' for my journalism career.

As I grew older, I explored speeches, media studies, film, and acting, thriving on the adrenaline of public speaking. After a year at UC studying media and communications, I joined Ara's journalism programme and haven't looked back.

Hands-on experience in radio, court reporting, TV, and interviewing families impacted by the mosque attack for Plains.FM has reinforced my commitment to this field. I'm excited to delve deeper into journalism!
