Naarm | Melbourne based Journalist & Master of International Relations Student
Hello, my name is Emanuelle, but everyone calls me Manue—and you can too!
I am a Naarm based journalist, writer and editor. I completed my bachelors in Journalism at RMIT and during that time, news read for JOY 94.9 and RRR. I have begun my masters at the University of Melbourne in International Relations, so as to understand the intricacies of the politics I hope to report on.
I have had the delight of volunteering with organisations such as Oxfam Australia, The Australian Conservation Foundation and the Organization for World Peace.
I believe the most valuable thing we have to offer in this life is our time. I am looking for more opportunities to lend the writing, editing and producing skills I have honed to causes that align with my own personal ethics.
