Hayley is a second year Government and International relations student with a passion for writing. She grew up in Melbourne, before moving to Batemans Bay in NSW where she completed her schooling. Upon graduating high school in 2012 she travelled to the US and Europe for a gap year, achieving the dream that she had been saving for since she was old enough to work. While travelling Hayley became increasingly interested in world affairs, which led her to Griffith University in 2014. Hayley volunteers with Griffith Mates and is a blogger for Griffith International’s blog, Explore! When she isn’t studying, Hayley spends her time at the cinema, reading (anything and everything), writing, taking her dog to the beach, and exploring the Gold Coast. She believes that happiness is key to a successful career and is following her passion for writing by joining the Getamungstit Editorial Team.
Fresh out of high school, Angel is a first year Business and Journalism student who hopes to achieve big things through majoring in Entrepreneurism and Self-Employment. Growing up, she’s has always had an interest in editorial writing and the visual imagery in magazines – often creating and designing concepts for her own publications. In 2013, Angel took on the role as the Art, Food, Beauty and Lifestyle Director of the cultural website homebodynobodies.com – a role which led her to fulfilling her passion in writing, editing and online journalism. She has since been chosen to write for Eyeline Magazine, along with photographing and reviewing the touring festival Groovin The Moo in Maitland this past May. She specialises in music reviews, beauty reviews and gig photography; and when she isn’t on campus studying, she’s usually blogging or wasting her money on makeup. By joining the Editorial Team at Getamungstit, Angel is hoping to further follow her aspirations whilst providing fresh and interesting content for Geta readers.
