High school attended: James Nash State High School.

Degree: Bachelor of Business (Management) and Graduate Diploma of Education (Secondary).

Target graduation date: Mid-2017.

My journey: I graduated high school in 2012 and went straight to University to study Property Economics and Development. After a year, I still wasn’t sure if the program was right for me. Then realised I should be studying a degree I was passionate about, rather than what I thought I was good at, or what my parents and friends told me I should be doing. After three degree changes, I finally found Business Management which I later then combined with teaching. My journey may have had a few zig zags but I’ve definitely found the right pathway for me and I can't wait to begin my career as a teacher.

Uni involvement: Student Ambassador, President of USC Golden Key Honours Society, President and Treasurer of Humans of USC, Student Success Advisor, PASS Leader, Student Mentor, ITAS Tutor, Student Support Officer, Student Guild, Quidditch League, Smart Steps leader, Gympie Student Liaison Committee and Student Representative Council member.

Other: I have received the Vice Chancellor’s Merit Scholarship, Graduate Women in Queensland Scholarship, Most Outstanding New Member of the Golden Key Society, Highest Achieving First Year Accounting Student Award, USC Advance Award and a bursary, all of which have significantly decreased the financial burden of University. I have also studied both at the Sippy Downs and Gympie campus, thus the scholarships have significantly helped with travel costs. 

Career aspirations: I aspire to develop a career I genuinely enjoy. If I don’t end up becoming a teacher, I still want to work in an area that allows me to be motivational, inspirational, creative, and work with a team.

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.
