What does life look for you now?

Settling back into Australia after to a year in the UK, moving to University

Tell us what you are passionate about?

I found my love for dance and music again! I joined a class and now have a few dance covers on YouTube!

When you were young, what were you hoping to be when you grew up?

YouTuber, food critic and teacher

What is your favourite Radford moment?

Year 9 camp

Do you have a particular role model or inspirational figure from Radford or now?

Mrs Jackson!

How easy was it to decide what to do in life?

I thought I knew what I wanted to do - got to university and decided I wanted to do something a little different. Changed courses and now I'm much happier

Did your further study or career go exactly as you'd planned?

No. I got into the course I originally applied for, did a year and a half of it before realising it was not where my passion was so I changed directions slightly and am now loving the new course I am in.

What do you know now, that you wish you'd known when you were at Radford?

That the ATAR was only one way toget into Uni, I didnt even need mine in the end.

What advice do you have for current students?

Take time for yourself. You can’t be going at 100% all the time, you need time to rest and reset.

Where are you now?
