I am a full-time student at The Australian National University in Arts/Law, as well as a part-time writer, and commission based subeditor. Previously, I was a student at Canberra Girls' Grammar School (ACT) and Tonbridge Grammar School (Kent, UK).

During my final year at Canberra Girls' Grammar School, I produced a bi-weekly newsletter which focused on writing for a wide audience and examining issues around the school. I enjoy a variety of books, poetry and plays, particularly the works of Arundhati Roy, Lorca, T. S. Eliot, Paolo Bacigalupi, Tom Stoppard and Oscar Wilde.

Experience

I have primarily assisted my younger and older sister with writing and speaking tasks for a number of subjects, primarily English, History and Philosophy. In particular, I have assisted my younger sister with developing a voice in both essays and oral presentations, allowing her to confidently and clearly express her own ideas and concepts.

I am in the process of teaching my younger sister techniques to allow her to give presentations and speeches without the use of cue cards. This gives her a better range of expression, including gestures and increased eye-contact.

I have also assisted my younger sister with low-level mathematics and sciences.
