A quick intro!
Hey there Future Journeyers,
I’m Gemma and every week I’ll be keeping you abreast of all things climate change.
I have just finished a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Macquarie University. My interests include conservation, zoology, ecology and climate change. During my degree, I also developed a passion for science writing, especially for an audience with no scientific background. This dual love for both science and writing soon led to an internship at Cosmos, an Australian science magazine. Here I learned how to translate complex, jargon dense scientific material into entertaining and informative articles that could be enjoyed by a mainstream audience. I believe that this skill is becoming an essential step to bridging the chasm between science and the general public, which is imperative at this time of global change. I intend to continue developing this skill to help inspire people into action.
I look forward to contributing to the Future Journeys blog!
