I completed my undergraduate degree, Bachelor of Arts (Media), at RMIT in 2006. My majors were Cinema Studies and Television Production. I see Honours as an opportunity for me to put the knowledge I have gained throughout my life and in my undergrad degree to use. I hope to achieve a portfolio that demonstrates my interests and abilities to future employers, but more importantly to myself. After uni I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, so taking time to think seriously about this has been beneficial. I have always been attracted to writing. Many of the electives I choose to do during my degree were writing based, such as journalism, creative writing, and screenwriting – my self-created Major. For my Honours Project I want to create a Zine, and write every article in it. I want it to be the kind of Zine that I would want to read; filled with the kind of articles that I want to write. What makes my soul smile is teaching people through the power of words. I hope to continue to learn throughout my life, and share this knowledge with others where possible through my writing.
