High school attended: Monto State High School 

Degree: Bachelor of Nutrition 

Target graduation date: 2021

My journey: I took a 5-year gap before returning to University. During this time, I worked full-time in 2 different jobs. I soon realised that is was not possible for me to live a happy and fulfilled life if I wasn’t working in something that I was passionate about! I then decided to take the leap back into studying at University and become a nutritionist to hopefully have a positive impact on the world in the future.

Career aspirations: I expect my future career/s will be quite dynamic as I have a lot of interest areas. These include public health nutrition, writing, sustainability and food marketing.

Why did you become an Ambassador? Choosing to go back to uni was the best decision I have ever made, but I am glad I waited until I was ready. I want to tell everyone about how great it is to study at USC and how important education is for our future and the future of our country.

What do you like about USC? I love my course, but I also love the on-campus culture. USC has a real sustainability focus which I am impressed with. I also enjoy all of the campus cafes - you can never get bored trying all the different coffees and food!
