High school attended: James Nash State High School

Degree: Bachelor of Business (Management)

Target graduation date: Mid-2017

My journey: I graduated high school in 2012 and went straight to University the following year. I only put in one preference of study at one University on my QTAC application as I was always sure I wanted to study at USC and my hopefully my high OP would get me through. The degree however, has varied over the years. After working in an accounting firm for 2 years and feeling isolated from the rest of society, I realised you shouldn’t always do what you’re good at, rather what you’re passionate about. In my second year I changed my job and my degree, and started a club at the University called Humans of USC. These decisions were a huge turning point for me and I’ve never looked back.

Uni involvement: Student Ambassador, President and Treasurer of Humans of USC, PASS Leader, Student Mentor, ITAS Tutor, Student Success Team Administrator, Student Guild, Quidditch League, Smart Steps leader

Other: I have received the Vice Chancellor’s Merit Scholarship, the Highest Achieving First Year Accounting Student award and a bursary so far, all of which have significantly decreased the financial burden of University. I also study at both the Sippy Downs and Gympie campus, thus the scholarships have also helped with travel costs.

Career aspirations: I aspire to find a job that I enjoy. Hopefully something motivational, creative, inspirational and allows me to lead and or work with a team. For now though I’m keeping an eye out for any opportunities while finishing my degree.

Why did you become an Ambassador? There are so many opportunities at USC other than just getting a degree. I’d like to showcase what USC has to offer from my own perspective and share my experiences. I honestly love USC and couldn’t see myself anywhere else. I’ve been told I’m a very passionate and excitable presenter, therefore wanted to use my qualities in an ambassador position as it would also give me a real head start towards my future goals.

What do you like about USC? The lifestyle, the community and the fact it doesn’t feel like a big institution. USC isn’t somewhere where people dread going to because they want an education, and even though it is rapidly growing, USC is small enough that there seems to be connections between everyone. It has a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
