About me

Hannah Laxton-Koonce has wanted to be a Journalist since she was 12 years old. At age 21, she is currently studying a Bachelor of Journalism, enjoying her second year at the University of Wollongong.

For now she's getting all the experience she can get, volunteering on community radio and working with Chattr.
