After graduating from St Stephen’s School Duncraig in 2013 and achieving an impressive ATAR score above 98, Jordana Sisarich hit the ground running.
“Upon finishing high school I was offered an assured entry pathway into Law at UWA and accepted it within a heartbeat,” Jordana said.
“Before commencing Law I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree, double majoring in Law and Philosophy, and graduated in 2016. I then returned to complete my Juris Doctor (postgraduate law) degree in 2017, and am anticipating to finish it at the end of this year after a long six years at uni.”
Her ambition has never wavered over the years, with Jordana now looking to the future and taking the next step to cement herself a position at one of Perth’s top law firms.
“I’ve recently clerked/interned at some top-tier commercial law firms, and currently work part time as a paralegal at one of those firms. I’m hoping to secure a graduate position with one of these firms upon graduating."
If she’s not studying, working at a local restaurant or baking decadent cakes, you’ll find Jordana immersed in uni life.
“Each year I volunteer for the Blackstone Society’s Academic Mentoring program by mentoring first year Law students, helping them to adjust and to ease the transition into Postgraduate Law,” she said.
Jordana is thankful for her years at St Stephen’s School where she developed her passion for learning and was encouraged to think outside the box.
“My time at St Stephen’s prepared me for life outside of school by encouraging me to always think about the bigger picture and to take a global approach to my thinking,” she said.
“St Stephen’s, in particular Year 12 English with Mrs Susan Carrick, sparked my love for learning and developing and growing as a person.”
“St Stephen’s also taught me the importance of being kind to one another and to respect those around you.”
