I discovered a hidden passion
I commenced my Bachelor of Laws at Bond University on the Gold Coast in January 2009, as the inaugural Sunland Foundation scholarship recipient, after graduating from St Joseph’s College, Hunters Hill in 2008.
This full scholarship has afforded me many opportunities, as well as giving me a solid foundation in law. Now in my sixth semester and at the end of my second year, I have immersed myself in campus life.
I am the founder and President of the Bond Indigenous Awareness Society. Its purpose is to broaden cultural awareness among both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The Society now has over 250 members, an achievement I am proud of.
I have been heavily involved in helping the University extend scholarships and provide other opportunities to Indigenous students, and have been engaged in events such as the inaugural Bond University Indigenous Art Auction.
Bond’s network of global employers has also provided me with the opportunity to undertake an internship at the international law firm Allens Arthur Robinson.
My ambition is to be a politician. I know studying law at Bond will provide the pathway I need to make that goal a reality.
Whilst studying at Bond I have discovered a hidden passion to one day be named a Queen’s Counsel, and make a real and substantial difference to the lives of my fellow Indigenous people.
