Emily Wadham

High school attended: Mountain Creek State High School 

Degree: Bachelor of Design (majoring in UX and UI Design)

Target graduation date: 2021

My journey: My journey at USC started during my first year out of school in 2013. I began studying Public Relations, and quickly realised it wasn’t for me. I took a long break to work in Brisbane and learn more about myself and my goals in life. After travelling and gaining knowledge about my future career aspirations, I have now returned to gain my Bachelor in Design (UX and UI Design) which is now offered at USC for the first time.

Career aspirations: In the future, I will become a freelance UX Designer, based here on the Sunshine Coast.

Why did you become an Ambassador? I became a Student Ambassador because I know that many people have followed a similar path to me, filled with uncertainty, and the Student Ambassadors helped me gain greater confidence in my future pathways. I’d like to help others, just like the Ambassadors did for me in the past.

What do you like about USC?I love that USC has a framework that encourages diversity, sustainability, and community. As a designer, I love the design facilities and the helpful staff members, as well as the groups on campus to help build a network of people who are just as passionate as I am.
