I was interested in how the brain works. I'd watch those TV shows where people look into the brain – that really excited me. But as I got into it, I couldn't see myself sitting behind a desk. I needed to be outside. So I switched degrees.

I'm working for the uni as an Indigenous mentor. We go into high schools and teach kids that uni is an option. The kids really open up to you. I enjoy my Aboriginal culture. A lot of kids don't. That's the struggle. I also work with the NRL and go into schools and teach kids footy. All these experiences are setting me up for my new career teaching PDHPE.
