Shelley recently graduated with a Distinction from the MA International Journalism program at Cardiff University, where she focused on broadcast journalism.

Prior to her year in Wales, she was a Corporate Trainer to executives at Volkswagen Financial Services in Germany. Before she moved to Germany, she spent one year working and backpacking solo throughout Australia.

Her experiences as a foreigner living abroad and travelling widely are what inspired her to pursue a career in journalism.

As a result of her diverse background and varied professional experience, she is very keen on continuing to work abroad in a culture that is different from her own.
