I hail from a Commerce background before university, and it is due to sheer determination as well as mentoring that got me to where I am today.

I aim to pursue Music Neuropsychology within the Neuroscience field. It’s an extremely specialized area and there aren’t many people that had delved into it just yet, but it’s my dream to integrate music, neuroscience and psychology.  The lecturers I've gotten thus far at the University of Melbourne have been some of the best lecturers I had ever been taught by. I still can't believe that some of my favourite textbook authors are teaching me live, and this is probably the best experience ever.

Hailing from a Commerce background before university, it is due to sheer determination as well as mentoring that got me to where I am today. It started with attending a Bio-Psychology talk back in Malaysia, whereby I first met my mentor, who coincidentally was the Head of Department of the program I was in. Her speech was awe-inspiring and talking to her more about it after the speech made me more intrigued in the area of Biology with Psychology. Since then I have been hooked on Neuroscience.

What made me ultimately choose UniMelb was the student-life that the university would be able to provide me with. UniMelb provides a safe platform and sufficient support for students to discover their inner passion and strengths. It isn't all about results in UoM, it's also about the life we live in Melbourne.

I’ve only been in UniMelb for two years, and in this short amount of time I’ve met true friends, developed good skills and am determined to get a good career. Being put into a situation where I’m living away from my parents, I have had to be independent. This can be tiresome, but at the end of the day I usually get a feeling of accomplishment.
