The author

I've spent the last 6 years completing a Bachelor of Media and Communications at USYD... only to figure out that I don't want to just be a journalist! During my degree I did a few design elective units- just the basics. But I loved it! From that point, I've tried to combine my interest in journalism with my passion for graphic design. For the past year, I've been doing internships which involved the two in some capacity. Currently, I'm applying for a Diploma of Graphic Design with Billy Blue as another step forward to make this career a reality!

I learned a lot about myself over these 6 years. I've agonised over what my 'thing' is and who I want to be when I 'grow up'. I've gone back and forth and around again. But now, I've moved past this angsty stage, finished what I started and made peace with my passion- I'm all in now and I want to hit the ground running!

Overview

This is a feature article I wrote for a local dance studio to be included in a local industry magazine (The Smeaton Grange Magazine- which I also did most of the layout design and illustration for). The main aim was to educate people about the studio and also the gender issues within the ballet community- namely how boys often experience bullying for participating in an art form stereotyped as 'feminine'. But boys can do ballet too! The client stated afterwards that she received more applicants from male students than before, so mission accomplished! *Note: only 2 of 4 pages of the full feature were uploaded- file too large
