"I have survived the array of obstacles that are intrinsic to tertiary education. Surprisingly, it has gone relatively quickly and has come as a school that now I have to consider what is next. Perhaps the secret to university is to choose a subject that you're passionate about. Archaeology, understanding my heritage and the heritage of others has always been a true desire of mine. As result, it has made this journey enjoyable, empowering and invaluable. I can only imagine what opportunities will come and I look forward to embracing them and fulfilling my dream."
