Hola and hello everyone!
My name is Geraldine Alphonse but I would love it if you call me Gigi. I recently graduated from a Bachelor in Journalism and Radio at Murdoch University.
Curiosity is what drives my passion behind media. As a woman in community broadcast, I have a big privilege and responsibility for the community and I enjoy being the voice for those who can’t.
I have my own radio show every Wednesday from 1pm to 3pm on Radio Fremantle 107.9 Fm in Perth called “Tickles with Gigi and Alice” and it has become one of the best experiences of my life. From meeting and supporting awesome people in the world of music and arts, to finding the most unusual and intriguing stories around the world. I am also a a regular assistant producer for “Artbeat” on RTR FM 92.1 on Fridays and this has helped me build my network and leadership skills.
This year I get to be an eChamp for the NEMBC 2018 conference in Perth and I have no words to describe how excited I am to learn more and use the skills I’ve acquired over the past years.
I came all the way from Colombia but I have completely fallen in love with Australia and everything it has to offer.Therefore, I couldn’t be more honoured to contribute and promote the importance of making good journalism across this beautiful nation and around the world.
