International journalist meets the PM Alice Angeloni BACHELOR OF ARTS (JOURNALISM AND POLITICS & INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS) CLASS OF 2018 When Alice Angeloni was offered a job writing for print and online publications in New Zealand, she made the bold career move to Blenheim, Marlborough – a town she had never heard of. In June, the promising young journalist sat down for an interview with New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. She also arranged for the PM to meet with a group of local teenage activists who have been calling for greater marine protection in the area. Alice reflects that it is these kinds of connections and stories that have made her move so rewarding. “Every day I talk to different people, I hear life stories, learn about our society, how it's structured and what makes people tick. I am challenged by my job and am learning all the time.” Alice said.

Kimberley nurse wins top award Andrea Rieusset BACHELOR OF NURSING CLASS OF 2005 Andrea Rieusset was named Western Australia’s Nurse of the Year and received the top honour in the Excellence in Aboriginal Health category at the annual WA Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards. The Awards recognised Andrea’s dedication to improving services and clinical outcomes for women and children experiencing family and domestic violence in the Kimberley. As a Nurse Practitioner in the Emergency Department at Fitzroy Crossing Hospital, her concern for the victims of family and domestic violence has led to the development of a comprehensive regional program. “My work seeks to improve outcomes for women presented with family and domestic violence – particularly for Aboriginal and high-risk women who suffer from ongoing abuse,” said Andrea. “I am determined to make a difference."
