Lucinda Francese is one of our 3rd year Cadets. She’s studying for a Bachelor of Journalism at La Trobe University and we have the pleasure of her company once a week as she has her work placement here at Doxa. We had a chat to find out more about her life.
What’s your favourite TV show and why?
I have many favourite TV shows but if I had to pick one, it would be Charmed. I just find myself re-watching the 8 series DVD box sets every year and it never gets old. One year I’d relate to one character and another it would be someone else. At the moment its Phoebe because she is a determined and passion driven woman; one I’d like to imitate wherever I can. Other TV shows I love are Game of Thrones, Veronica Mars & American Horror Story.
Can you tell us about your involvement with Doxa?
I’m a third year Cadet at Doxa and I act as an assistant across all programs. Within Doxa, I provide assistance in administration as well as brainstorm ideas for social media and for the Doxa blog.

Every year of the Cadetship program has been beneficial to my professional and personal development. Doxa has provided me with valuable skills and knowledge that will stay with me for a lifetime. Despite graduating soon, I know I will continue to assist Doxa in their greatness goals. Once you join Doxa you stay connected to a supportive family that will stand by you whenever you need them to.
Name some of the things in society that matter to you?
I find that everybody needs to have someone or a group of people they can rely on for support. As much as we try to pretend we might be okay, sometimes we just need a shoulder to lean on. I for one know my family and friends act as my support network, so I definitely recommend finding yours. You will realise an instant change in how you view life and this will assist you in becoming someone else’s support network.

What’s your favourite social network and why?
My favourites are Facebook and Twitter because of the way they provide content based around my passions. I find great articles that relate to my interests on Facebook and tips on skills like writing on Twitter. I do also jump on SnapChat if I’m having a bad day and need a good laugh from the filters.
