I've been lucky enough to be born with good health, so I wanted a career where I could enrich the lives of those who were not so lucky.
Ever since my Dad started training me during my under-11's Rugby League days I have been interested in how the body responds to exercise. I also like how physiotherapy reaches out to all areas of the population; not just those involved in sport.
I'll usually attend a tutorial, grab some lunch with friends and then study for a while before going to work. My favourite class is PHTY2062 - Physiotherapy in Respiratory and Cardiac Conditions. The number of things that can go wrong with your lungs through no fault of your own chills me. I want to be someone who can help people in those types of situations.
I think I've learned to relax outside of class better at university. The HSC was just two-years of awfully hard work! I was surprised by the free tennis courts at Cumberland - they're great!
My classmates are really studious, but a lot of fun inside and outside of class. My lecturers are passionate about their subjects and always happy to provide answers to my many questions.
Work for a hospital or a private practice for a few years, before opening up my own gym ASAP. I like the idea of calling the shots!
Develop a flexible mindset. Life can really wrestle with you, so learn when to yield and when to push!
