LIFE

LEARNER

A strong motivational factor for my commitment to the journalistic profession is the promise of continuous personal learning and development in order to create real ground-breaking journalism. I dream of a job that encourages me to meet new people, expand my horizons and grow as a person. Journalism will allow me to be creative, have a diverse work schedule and reach an audience, whom I want to make a difference for

 COMMITMENT PAYS OFF

After 6 months as co-presenter for RGU News, I was unanimously elected to be Station Manager. I supervised content and production for broadcast, ensured house-style was implemented and regulation requirements followed. I was personally rewarded a half Scarlett Award for my dedication to creating a reliable University radio station, and RGU:Radio received “Most improved media society” for the 50% listenership increase.

After consistently receiving positive editorial feedback from my editor at my four-month voluntary internship with WRP in 2018, I was offered a half year contract to return as a producer.

PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES

With two years of experience creating audio content, I’ve developed a proficient and pragmatic editing technique creating of jingles, editing speech and mixing formats.

I enjoy editorial freedom, where I can let my technical creativity flourish, but I'm used to editing after templates.
My debate show drastically improved my skills running mixer desks and adjusting audio levels while hosting & stirring the debate.

For the ROOTLESS “one-mand production”, I independently coded the website, designed the layout and produced the jingles.

CULTURALLY CULTIVATED

My curiosity for cultures and languages prompted me to move across four continents for the past six years. I’m captivated by observing how the interplay between religions, tradition, language and history form our contemporary societies. I’ve travelled and lived autonomously since the age of 18 developing my independence, confidence and adaptability. My nomad lifestyle culminated in the creation of ROOTLESS, where I explore cultural, social and political issues and dive into the taboos of my current location.
