Interview of music interns by Rose Sejean and Molly McKew

Name: Melissa Barendsen

Age: 26

Location: Ballarat

What are you most excited about working with Ramona?

Meeting new, interesting people and having the chance to gain some valuable insight, knowledge and experience in the music journalism industry.

What is your dream career?

Either music journalism or publicity. Something where I can be creative, connected and use my love of both the English language and music.

If you could live in any city in the world, where would you go?

Split, Croatia because it is full of natural beauty and there are so many incredible places to explore.

Why is feminism important to you?

It’s all about fairness. I don’t believe gender should be seen as a limitation or disadvantage. We are all unique, we all possess different strengths and weaknesses but none of this is determined by our sex. I think it is wrong to pigeon-hole people and automatically assign stereotypes and traits to them based on the most rudimentary part of their genetic makeup.

What are you most excited about working with Ramona? 

I’m most excited to work with talented and driven people with similar passions, whilst learning and soaking up as much as I can throughout this experience.

What is your dream career? 

To be signed to a major music publisher, writing songs for well established artists. The ultimate dream would be to hear my songs on the radio and listening to people connect with my music, posting their own covers on YouTube and SoundCloud.

If you could live in any city in the world, where would you go? 

Nashville all the way! The music and song writing scene is apparently amazing over there!

Why is feminism important to you?

Feminism is important to me because equality is important to me.
