Biography

For as long as I can remember, I have been inspired by the powerful role of technology in shaping our world and enhancing our future. I believe that technology propels innovation, and that innovation is the key to unlocking untapped opportunities and forging new pathways that lead to positive change. Through undertaking a Bachelor of Computer Science majoring in Software Engineering, I am eager to explore entrepreneurship utilising emerging technologies including Virtual and Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, cloud computing and haptic technology. Ultimately, I hope to be the CEO of my own global technology-based brand, and I aspire to become a pioneering role model for females in STEM, and an advocate for the importance of all perspectives within the Australian digital landscape.

 

Beyond my academic goals, I enjoy equestrian sports, cycling, and bush walking with my dog, as well as video games, digital art, and relaxing with my family and friends.
