What is your favourite thing about your school?
I enjoy the close connection between peers and students which give a much more personal learning experience.
I plan on taking my Bachelors of commerce because I have always had a passion for management and anything business related.
My best study tip would be, once you finish reading notes, talk about them as much as possible to a friend, classmate or family member. This really helps me remember what I was studying as I really have to understand what I have just read to be able to put it into my own words.
What is one major challenge that you’ve had to overcome at school? How did you overcome it?
My major challenge that I had to overcome was my poor study habits. Before, I would study no more than an hour, if even, before any form of examination, my marks definitely were impacted by my lack of studying. I began studying more and I am so proud of the marks I have been getting and it only motivates me to do better.
During my year abroad in Italy, I grew this new passion for different cultures. I befriended many people from all over the world and I was always so interested listening to them talk about their cultures and ways of living. I planned many trips to see other countries and cities. I wish to continue traveling throughout my life, forever learning about the world we live in.
