"When choosing a career, it was
                               important for me to pick something
                               that would give me fulfilment. Early
                                childhood education has definitely
                               given me that, and there have been
                              many moments where I've been able
                                to have a really positive impact on
                               my students. UniSA’s reputation for
                                 practical and industry experience
                            meant that I completed various industry
                            placements, where I applied knowledge
                             into practice. Since graduating, I have
                              secured a job as a Reception teacher,
                                   which is incredibly exciting."
