Dani Rothwell is a 21-year-old with a passion for media.
Dani completed a Bachelor of Professional Communication with Monash University in 2015, majoring in Journalism and Public Relations. During the first half of 2016, she underwent a Diploma in Digital Content with the Australian Film, Television and Radio School.
In 2015, she completed an internship with Star News Group and was employed as a Cadet Journalist on a casual basis. She has also held various media roles such as Marketing Assistant with Scouts Victoria, Public Relations Associate with Fifty Acres and President of the Monash Union of Berwick Students.
Most recently, Dani is a contributor with Theatre People, as a writer, reviewer and photographer. She is hoping to expand her contributions to include videography.
Dani applied for the 2016 Youth Parliament Press Gallery program to expand her media skillset in an encouraging and enthusiastic space. Having participated in Youth Parliament in 2011 and 2012, she is passionate about giving young people a voice, and believes Press Gallery is a beneficial way to continue that work.
Her interests include theatre, politics, volunteering and creating content. Her goal is to be employed as a content producer preferably for an arts organisation.
Dani is excited for the challenge of being the videographer of the 2016 Youth Parliament Press Gallery.
