What do you study?

Bachelor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Your best tip for a first year university student?

Balance. You have to balance your studies with your social life, your work, and your health. Balance is the key to happiness because if you focus too much on one thing you tend to neglect the others and this can be very unhealthy.

What is your dream role when leaving university?

My dream role is to be a project manager for an Engineering company. I feel that I have good leadership qualities and I would love to lead a team of engineers to solve issues.

Why is employability important to you?

Because I want to encourage people to get out there and explore the industry. You might be uncertain about where you want to go now but if you look around, something might interest you but you would never know unless you searched. I too was in this place and I am still figuring out where I want to work and what fields of Engineering I want to focus on.

What do you hope to achieve as an EAIT Employability Ambassador?

I want to encourage people to keep going. If I can do it, you can do it too! I want to be able to relate to students and share my story and be able to help other students not to give up.
