My educational background consists of a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice with a concentration in Law. Since graduating, I have worked briefly for a non-profit organisation, which has exposed me to the housing crisis, along with working at the polls during our last federal election. I have since started working at a retail book store in which I curate displays focusing on diversity, manage their social media account, facilitate the raising of funds for our storewide charity.
My writing experience includes academic papers during my university experience, writing social posts for my job and my blog and occasionally for a book club.
