I am so fascinated by the human mind and body and its ability to function in everyday life without us needing any conscious control over it.

I've always been interested in science as it explains so much of what happens around us.  Particularly, I am so fascinated by the human mind and body and its ability to function in everyday life without us needing any conscious control over it. In terms of career I'd love to be able to work on the human brain as I'm constantly fascinated by that, but in terms of whether that means in research or further into the realms of medicine - I just don't know yet.

Through studying at Melbourne I've been able to push my boundaries in terms of what I've been able to learn and experience. I have loved the broad variety of subjects I’ve taken and the resources particular topics use to reinforce learning. Currently, I’m doing 3rd year anatomy subjects which use real human cadaveric tissue and it is so surreal that the layers you see in text books are actually there physically!

I think the biggest thing about university is you have to really embrace the experience.  Go up and talk to people, ask questions, join clubs, do subjects that aren't with your friends - don't be afraid to jump a little bit out of your comfort zone.
