Brooke Chandler

I am in my third year of studying a Bachelor of Communications (Journalism) and am thoroughly enjoying my role as Charlie Editor.

Hi, I’m Grace and I am currently in my first year of studying a Bachelor of Paramedicine. I graduated high school in 2021 and have just moved from Canberra to Bathurst. Although I am new to university life, I hope to pass on what I have learnt to those who will be starting in the coming years. I am passionate about health, nature, and reading.

Greta Porter

I am a third year education student on Bathurst campus studying early childhood and primary teaching. I am passionate about many things including reading, teaching, motorsports, cricket, travel, film and music. I hope to bring refreshing and insightful content to charlie on topics of all ranges and have really been enjoying the whole process thus far.

Catherine Mallia

I’m Cat, a PhD student at CSU researching alternative ways to teach biological sciences without animal dissection and experimentation. I’m also in my second year of an Environmental Science degree, majoring in wildlife and conservation biology. Clearly, I love learning, and have spent most of my adult life studying something. I’m interested in almost everything, but if I had to pick a few it would be writing, hiking, camping, nature, animals, and of course education. I hope to bring you useful information on effective studying techniques and anything else I think could be interesting for you.

Jordan Treloar

I’m a PhD student and a previous Charlie Editor. I love motorsport and it is a dream when all the Supercars roar around Mount Panorama in October. I look forward to writing and sharing content for all of you to enjoy.

Pagan Harrison-Brown

I am currently in the last year of studying a Masters in Communications and have a Bachelor’s in Journalism. I am a content creator for an online retailer and when I am not working or studying I am either streaming, modeling, or creating videos for my YouTube channel.
