Inge eager to get to work in community
THERE’S a fresh face covering all the important stories in the Whitsundays.
Griffith University graduate Inge Hansen has joined the Whitsunday
Times and Whitsunday Coast Guardian team, eager to get involved with the craft and the community.
“I’m looking forward to learning about all the different facets of the profession, how a newsroom works and how it all comes together,” she said.
“I love communicating with people, finding out new things about them and involving myself in the community.”
Having been on the job for almost two weeks, Inge said she was loving the opportunity.
“Community newspapers are one of the areas I wanted to end up in because I love how communities are close knit and I love learning about all the little stories people have,” she said. “You find a lot of gems.” Living away from home for the first time in her 20 years, the young journalist is already feeling at home in the Whitsundays.
“I wasn’t expecting to have to move so quickly having never moved before and having been living in the same place my whole life,” she said.
“I’ve really wanted to live independently for a while now and this is the perfect opportunity to do just that – and it’s going well so far!”
She’s keen to make the most of our beautiful surrounds as well.
“I’d love to explore the islands and get involved with some water activities,” she said.
