My name is Brianna and I am 21 years old. I have just completed a Communications and Media degree at the University of Notre Dame where I majored in Journalism. I am very excited to be starting an 8-week internship with Eastside and kickstarting a career in service of the community!
I am from Western Sydney, but I also love the energy and diversity of the city life. The people I have met are all so captivating and have different stories to tell, and that is one of my favourite things about journalism and radio – being able to share these stories.
I have a great love of music. Throughout my schooling, I was active in music and choir programs, performing at the Sydney Opera House, and have carried this passion of music into my adult life by appreciating all kinds of music. If I had to pick a favourite genre, it would be indie folk. I have linked a few of my favourite songs through here!
I also love travelling. My favourite experience was completing the Kokoda Youth Leadership Challenge in 2016. Over 10 days, myself and 30 other young leaders trekked the Kokoda Trail, learning more about the history, culture and significance of the terrain, while also developing ourselves into better leaders. It was by far the most memorable and meaningful journey I have undertaken.
Anyway, it was wonderful to introduce myself to you all and I can’t wait to help make some magic here in the studio!
