What are you studying?

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (History and Global Politics).

What made you want to become a Student Representative?

I have always had a passion for learning but access to educational resources and support for myself and my peers has always been a struggle. I want to ensure all students no matter their background are empowered in a way that allows them to unlock their potential and thrive at University. 

What do you aim to achieve for UniSA students in 2022?

Defining what a post-pandemic “normal” looks like and what path the Uni should take to get there is of the utmost importance to me. A lot of work needs to be done to reinvigorate university life on campus and equally to shape our online platform into a world-leading education tool for those studying online. 

What’s the best thing about your campus?

In the time I have been able to spend on campus over the past 2 years I have found the people really do make the campus. The social activities hosted by clubs and student groups have made life on campus so enjoyable. 

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

At University you are never alone. Going to university is a big step for a lot of people and 9 times out of 10 if you are struggling there are other people who are in the same boat. Engaging with USASA and student clubs can help you connect with like-minded people and services. As stressful as some challenges can be, it makes the experience extremely rewarding.  

Where is your favourite place to visit in Australia?

While it’s hard to choose just one, the Yorke Peninsula is absolutely beautiful. Whether it’s sitting with a good book, breathing in the fresh country air or going down to the beach and relaxing in the sun, it’s the perfect break from the buzz of city life. 

If you were a bird, what type of bird would you be?

If I were a bird I would probably be a Kookaburra. I’m generally quite gentle and calm but can make noise when I need to. I also love hanging out with mates and having a good laugh.

What is your favourite way to eat potatoes?

Depends on the type of potato. Most potatoes I prefer mashed but if we’re talking sweet potatoes, who doesn’t love a good sweet potato fry? 

What is a strange fact that you know? 

It is illegal in WA to possess more than 50kg of potatoes in one place.
