Rochelle Kirkham



I am a journalist based in Melbourne and a fresh graduate of Bachelor of Communications (Journalism) at RMIT University.

I currently work as a journalist at the Hepburn Advocate.

I have interned at the Ballarat Courier and travelled to Tokyo to complete a six week internship with The Japan Times.

I volunteered as a reporter with SYN Media for their flagship news and current affairs program Panorama in 2016. I have also volunteered as a news reader on the breakfast shift for 90.7FM.

I was a contributing writer for Catalyst Magazine and have had work published with various organisations including The Courier, Hinton, City Journal News and Rowville-Lysterfield Community News.

I was a member of the YMCA Victorian Youth Press Gallery in 2016.

I love storytelling and am passionate about creating informed and original stories, with a particular interest in long-form multimedia.
