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 USQ’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, but I have now finished the first 3 years of my 6 as a part time student.'
'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!'
