“My mum raised me and my brother by herself, and also worked full-time. She set a great example for us, but I knew at times she struggled, and observing that made me want to pursue a career in which I could help people.
I joined the police force, but soon realised that being on the front line meant that I needed to dedicate my time to managing situations as they escalated, rather than preventing them.
I never thought university was the pathway for me, but I dared to dream, and went to a Curtin Mature Age Information Session to find out more about courses and entry pathways. It was there I discovered caring, compassionate and dedicated staff who not only answered my questions, but also encouraged me to start my study journey with the support I needed.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Psychology in 2015, and now work as an educator within the Curtin University Addressing Higher Educational Access Disadvantage (AHEAD) program. It’s designed to encourage and inspire low socio-economic students from years seven to 12 to consider university as a genuine pursuit.”
