Diving into university head first at age 22 was a big decision for Bri. She had always told teachers, parents and herself that she just wasn’t made for university.
'I thought it was too late to go back and start a new career in a field I hadn’t experienced.'
But after travelling across America for a month she realised she was working in a job that wasn’t advancing, one that brought her money but not fulfilment.
'I asked myself ‘five years from now if I am still doing this same job, will I be happy?’ My answer was ‘are you crazy? NO’. I realised there was a whole world full of experiences made just for me and chose to pursue study.'
With the help of UniSQ’s online Career Explorer, Bri made the decision to enrol in a Bachelor of Communication and Media with a major in public relations. It turned out to be the best decision, one that would launch her into a world of endless opportunities.
'Engaging in study has driven me to work harder, be better and more fearless in the pursuit of my dreams. Three years ago, I would have never imagined I would be where I am today.'
'If you don’t start today, you can start tomorrow or the next day, but time will pass, and procrastinating will only keep you in one place. Start today!'
