Nice to meet you.
My name is Manue, and I am a writer, storyteller and journalist living on unceded Dja Dja Wurrung Country.
I went to university because it seemed like a good idea, and they gave me a degree when I finished, which was very generous. It was a bachelor's in Communications (Journalism) from RMIT. It was a good place for me to hone my communication skills, and I learned the art of hard news writing, radio presenting, video producing and how to choose the best place for lunch in the city depending on how long my break was between classes.
I have had the privilege of using said skills for organizations like JOY 94.9, RRR, Oxfam Australia, ACCLAIM Magazine, The Organziation for World Peace, Conversation at the Crossroads and the Australian Conservation Foundation. I was completing a Masters of International Relations at Melbourne Uni when the pandemic hit and brought my attention to the impact of my surrounding on me i.e. where are all the damn trees!
After rage quitting the city, I have created a peaceful life for myself in Yandoit. Whilst living in regional Victoria, I have worked with young people all over the Loddon Campaspe region with Youth Take Over. I have been a volunteer for Camp Different, Pride Camp and Over The Rainbow's Pride Formal. Now I am writing a bio about myself for my website. It's nice to write with a view of the trees as I no longer need to go looking for them.
