Portfolio in a Page: Jessica Yun
My name is Jessica Yun. I’m a final-year Journalism/International Studies student at the University of Technology, Sydney.
I’m currently building an online portfolio which I’m excited to show to the world. Soon. In the meantime, however, this is just a quick rundown of my professional profile, a handy list of all the work I’ve done — a portfolio in a page.

Inspired by creativity, hard work and the spirit of entrepreneurship that grows around her daily in the vibrant city of Sydney, Jessica Yun is passionate about working in the media industry and always eager to step up to a challenge.
Though she is still completing the final year of her journalism degree, she has held various roles in the media industry as a sub-editor, social media strategist, news reporter, radio producer and editorial intern. Keenly interested in the field of journalism, social media, media strategy, start-ups, creative agencies and the not-for-profit sector, she is always looking to expand her horizons, enhance her skill-set and discover new passions along the way.
