Sam Dale

High School attended: Kawana Waters State College

Bachelor of Business/ Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) 

Target graduation date: 2020

My journey: After turning down a scholarship at USC to pursue a law degree at another university, I ended up returning to USC to be closer to home and pursue my passions in accountancy and financial planning. Upon returning, I wish I had never left the Sunshine Coast, for the university was part of the lifestyle I had grown up knowing and has helped me build my career one step at a time.

Career aspirations: I hope to do financial consultancy services for big named hotel companies, and work with brands across the globe to make them more profitable. There’re always options for business growth, and I want to be a part of that.

Why did you become an Ambassador? To show people that you shouldn’t follow the rules and expectations dictated by society of where you should end up. Things change, and the best happiness lies in pursuing your dreams, at a university that can help you get there, USC.

What do you like about USC? The people, students and staff, the culture, the atmosphere, and the opportunity to live a life outside of university, one that’s balanced and promotes wellness mentally and physically.
