I became a journalists in January 2019 and have been developing community connections ever since. I have lived in Deniliquin since 2012 after moving from Sydney and finished my schooling at the local primary and high schools. I am passionate about my community, the issues it faces and the recognition it receives, good and bad. I am currently studying journalism at university and expect to remain in Deniliquin for a long time to come. I hope to be a voice for this great community and someone people can approach to share their stories.
