I have just completed a three year Bachelor of Media Arts Communications degree; and have almost completed a Diploma of Journalism [Will be obtained once I have completed my Teeline/shorthand module] at Waikato Institute of Technology.
Three years of communication studies has equipped me with excellent communication skills which now give me the confidence to communicate to anyone, anywhere, anytime. I am a well presented young woman with a growing passion for writing and media. During my Journalism studies I completed two internships at community news papers in the Waikato; one at the Piako Post, and the other at the Te Awamutu Courier. These internships have seen me develop a strong reporting style which is well accompanied by effective photographs, audio and visual media.. I am a great team member as my friendly and outgoing personality allows me to openly discuss any ideas with my fellow employees. I consider myself as a self-motivated fast learner who is organized and highly capable of working independently in a fast paced environment. I offer employers a conscientious worker as I have the ability to perform all given tasks efficiently and thoroughly. I enjoy a challenge and strive for the best result in every opportunity given to me. With a passion for telling stories I look forward to endeavouring into the media industry and living my dream as a journalist.
