I am a third year Communications (Journalism) student studying Bachelors at Deakin University Burwood, and a fellow contributor to the D*scribe Website!
My passion for Journalism has always focused around the gathering of information that people would not normally receive. Investigation is exciting, and journalism is full of it. I love to focus on the world, events happening overseas, and the way different cultures can differ from us in Australia.
I’d also like to provide media support for the Victorian Police at some stage. It is an aim for me to possibly find work in the police media system, or work alongside government as some sort of criminal reporter.
I really enjoy the information distribution that Journalism can offer to students like us, and hate the idea of people having misinformed prejudices, in turn creating biased opinions that can fester and manipulate truths. Journalism is about exposing the truths for all of us, keeping the public informed and in my opinion, stopping injustice at its roots. It should be our responsibility to upkeep ethical standards in our reports, and make sure our opinions are kept in check in order to properly inform, not just convince others.
