Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy, and Economics


I was ecstatic when I was awarded a scholarship. It has motivated me to intently focus on my studies with renewed confidence, while still enjoying the social aspect of being at university. By devoting time to university over working, I've been able to expand my network and develop employability skills for my future career. I'm hopeful that I can help pave the way for other high-achieving women to pursue a career in the economics industry.
