Senior Resident Fellow

What course are you studying? Bachelor of Education (Secondary Arts)

Where are you from? Oberon

Favourite college event and why? 2018 was a tough year for Australian farmers. So as a way for us to do our part, we held an auction and sold off ourselves and our varying skills to raise money for 'Buy a Bale'. In the three years I have lived at Wright, this has been the best event I have attended. Everyone was in the spirit of a good cause and some serious money was raised.
