My name is Olivia Nankivell; the face behind Sentient Soul.
I am a freelance journalist and sustainability copywriter based in Adelaide, South Australia.
In April 2020, I graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Journalism and Professional Writing and a Bachelor of Arts (International Relations). I’ve also completed a Diploma of Environment & Climate Emergency at Curtin University (WA).
I write weekly content and Eco News for The Eco Hub on Flora & Fauna; Australia’s largest vegan eco-retailer. I also work with One Sustainable Planet to produce blog content. Recently, I completed a 1-year Communications Internship with Greenpeace Australia Pacific. This work involved pitching stories to newsrooms/journalists, writing op-eds and blogs, and assisting with comms R&D.
I’ve also written several articles for Earthling Magazine, The QUO, and the Mindless Mag Special Edition 2020 (found on Issuu).
I believe that each individual on this Earth can make an incredible difference in the long run. I’m on a mission to reduce my carbon footprint, improve my wellbeing, and make the world a safe and happy place for those who don’t have a voice.
