Reporter, News Corp Australia
My work has taken me to some amazing places and situations -I’ve interviewed sports heroes, criminals, actors, politicians, comedians, musicians and award-winning scientists and authors.
“I was in the front row of the Essendon press conference the day the ASADA ruling was handed down.
“I was outside Masa Vukotic’s home as her family and friends played soccer in the days after she was killed.
“I tracked down a suicide bomber’s dad and was chased out of an IS recruiter’s house.
“When the quakes hit Nepal earlier this year, I was part of the team searching for missing Australians and speaking with their families.
“I was trapped on top of the Fed Square steps with screaming Reclaim Australia members, while counter-protesters tried to force their way through mounted police below us.
“And I wouldn’t have been able to do any of that without a qualification from RMIT.
“One of the real highlights of the course was the internship program. I spent three weeks working at the Herald Sun, writing everything from state politics to animal pic stories. My internships prepared me for the newsroom in a way that no amount of study ever could.
“I was also really impressed by the facilities in the RMIT media building – from dozens of editing labs and radio suites to our own television studio – it was immediately clear the benefit of working at a skill and technology-based institution rather than just another theory-based tertiary course.
