‘Growing up, I never imagined that I would go to university. I was never a high achiever in school, but I had a drive to learn and to use that knowledge to help my people is some way,’ she said in a graduate profile.

‘I had no idea of what I wanted to do in life, what I wanted to study or what was even available.

‘Growing up I had the misconception that you had to be very smart to go to university so my confidence in myself and my abilities to attend or complete university were very low.’

The young woman completed an Aboriginal orientation course from UWA’s School of Indigenous Studies to prepare her for her degree.
