“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.”

– Anne Frank

I love that quote.

It’s bitterly sweet.

A girl whose voice was silenced in life, used her oppression to find an audience in her death.

It’s beautifully, tragically cyclical.

She dreamt of being a journalist. We have that in common.

Journalism is my main game.

It’s my ambition. It’s my first love.

Like Anne, it’s what brings me the greatest joy in hard times.

I graduated from the University of Sydney with my Bachelor of Arts/Communications in Media and Material Culture in 2015-2016.

I hope to marry my photographic practice with my writing and my broadcast experience.

I hope to have the opportunity Anne Frank was never given.
