Biography

Innovation is the way of the future, and the future is in the hands of our youth. Being a female within the leading field of innovation - Information Technology - one of my many ambitions is to help schools introduce STEM to our youth from the very beginning of their educational journey, paving a clear pathway for the development of our future pioneers.

 

As a young kid, I was surrounded by many individuals, especially my mum, who would encourage me to tinker with different technology, whether it was removing a corrupt hard-drive from those old, 4-inch thick laptops, or changing the router settings to fix up the slow WiFi. Joining an all-girls robotics team in my high-school years furthered my interest in IT and STEM, and by the end of the HSC, I was able to code websites, build PC's and think critically, just like an engineer would.

 

That is why I choose to study Information and Communication Technology (ICT) at Western Sydney University, so I can provide the same, rewarding experience to kids across Australia.
