Lisa: My name is Lisa Murton and I’m studying Bachelor of Business Administration here at the USQ. I love it, absolutely love it, I wish I had done it 30 years ago.
Well originally I was in the workforce, I have been all my life since leaving school and I always wanted to come to University but never had the opportunity to come and finally I did have the opportunity to come and I thought well now’s the time in life to come and do it. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to do it but I surprise myself, I can do it, it’s easy…I shouldn’t say it’s easy there’s a lot of work involved but it’s still easy and it’s great fun.
Well most of my life I’ve owned my own businesses, but for the last 13 years I’ve worked for a large Australian Government department and the office I was working in closed down and I had the choice of going to get a job elsewhere or doing something I always wanted to do. So the choice was well where a door closes a window opens so it was University and I thought it’s either now or never, so that’s what I did.
This was my aspiration was to come to uni, this was my main aspiration in life was to come to uni and do something all my life I’ve always thought about, saw my children do and I thought well if I do this, this is the aspiration of my life.
