Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Business

I was, and still am, an extremely curious person by nature, so for me, going to uni was a natural progression. I was never not going to do it. I love learning new things.

I knew since primary school I wanted to do Law. It fascinated me and presented a good challenge.

I'm absolutely loving it. It feels so right being here with likeminded people…everyone’s lovely…the teachers are great…it has exceeded my expectations.

I was worried I would be disadvantaged when it came to being employed, and now I think the opposite. If anything, the smaller class sizes are more efficient and flexible. People live different lives, I have to work…and USC recognises that…something the big universities don't.

I do want to make a difference whether it be big or small. I don’t know how or where, but that is the end goal – to help others and give back.

A lot of people don’t realise that as individuals we truly have the ability to do anything we want to do.

I love simple things… and I love music. It's a whole other world and it takes you to other places. Music is beautiful and complex.
