Describe yourself in 25 words or less:

I am a very happy and positive person with a love for learning and trying new things.

What do you love about studying on the Sunshine Coast?

I love studying on the Sunshine Coast because of all the extra-curricular opportunities we get, from being in school productions to academic challenges it is so much fun to be able to get involved. The Sunshine Coast also has so much to do outside of school, including beaches and nature walks.

What do you love most about your school?

The thing I love most about my school is that it offers such great opportunities for students to fulfil. Everyone is so encouraging and approachable that they inspire you to do what you want and to always try your best.

Name your favourite spot to visit on the Sunshine Coast and why?

My favourite location on the Sunshine Coast is Mooloolaba Beach. This is because you can lay on the beach or go for a swim, stroll through the many shops along the esplanade, and grab a bite to eat at one of the cafes.

Do you have any advice to other students thinking of studying on the Sunshine Coast?

My advice would be to do it. The Sunshine Coast offers so many great studying programs that you will never run out of new options. Everyone is extremely accepting so regardless of what you want to do, you’ll fit in easily.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

Growing up I always wanted to become a primary teacher.

What do you want to do when you complete your study (career aspirations)?

When I finish school, I am considering becoming a primary school teacher or a social media marketer.

If you could be one Australian animal what would it be and why?

If I could be one Australian animal I would be a platypus because they’re so fast in the water and they are shy so it’s really cool when you see one.

Why did you choose to become a Study Sunshine Coast Student Ambassador?

I chose to become a Study Sunshine Coast Student Ambassador because I really wanted to show people how amazing the Sunshine Coast really is and all the great opportunities we have here.
