About Anna

Who’s someone who inspires you?

As a budding political commentator, Annabel Crabb, Hugh Riminton and Andrew Bolt I would consider my role models. Annabel I think is particularly fabulous because she is a unique mix of intelligence and style.

More locally, Natasha Di Ciano of EGAMI [on King St.] is someone who I interned with last year; she has a very strong sense of self, of style and of community. She channels all these fantastically through her image consultancy work.

What are you hoping to achieve during your time at IPAA?

To get more experience in social media and marketing, I’m really excited about the next couple of months. The IPAA 2014 International Conference should be great!

What is your dream career?

I would love to work as a Political/International Correspondent for a TV Network like the ABC, to blog as part of my work would be awesome.
