                         College of Sport were the placements.
                      Getting that hands-on experience really
                   helped me define that this is what I wanted
                     to do as a career. I was working firsthand
                     alongside people who were already doing
                         these roles and that helped me decide

‘Some of the challenges I face
being an elite athlete and also
trying to study are mainly
around competitions; I spend
time away from home competing
overseas and interstate which
prevents me from attending my
classes. Being with the La Trobe
Elite Athlete Program helps with
my situation and all my tutors
have been really great at helping
me through all my subjects.’
