The University of Melbourne is where I invest in myself, embrace the challenges and pursue my passion ruthlessly to achieve my goals.

My introduction to biotechnology was when I was taught genetic engineering at school. I took biotechnology as a core subject during high school and never looked back since. I went on to do my Bachelors and now Masters in the same field, broadening my knowledge and experience.

Attending numerous workshops, seminars and networking events have benefited my professional development as a graduate student. I get the opportunity to meet passionate individuals from the industry, exchange ideas and obtain career advice.

The University of Melbourne is where I invest in myself, embrace the challenges and pursue my passion ruthlessly to achieve my goals. There are lot of career options after my Biotechnology degree, which I did not realise before. My dream career is to work in a multinational pharmaceutical company as a business development manager, where I travel the world and interact with new people.
