What's your best piece of advice for your fellow students?

University experience is so much more than going to classes and studying. Please get involved in all the other great things your university has to offer, because when you are working and look back at the your uni days no one remembers the assignments you did but the time you spent and memories you made. You may not get these years back, so don't hold back, put yourself out there and make the most of out of your time here.

Which UniSA events are you looking forward to attending this year?

The end of the year party!!

What instantly puts you in a good mood?

A hot shower, fresh sheets, scented candles, wrapping myself in my blanket and going to sleep.

What is your go to drink order?

The classic Gin and Tonic :) It can never go wrong.

If you could have dinner with anyone - dead or alive - who would it be and why?

I am going to turn on my fangirl mode and say BTS! Who doesn't want to have dinner with seven funny and talented boys hahaha

What is your best personality trait?

I feel like I am a good listener and very observant. I tend to remember small details about people which makes them want to trust me.
