Deanna Savoia

I am a recent graduate of a Bachelor of Communications (Journalism) completed at Deakin University. Throughout my degree I was given a hands-on approach and had the opportunity to write for D*scribe News, where I could explore different styles of writing. This has given me the drive to further my skills by learning in a professional environment in the journalism industry.

I am an advocate for reading and love literature.
