What was your favourite part about being a St Stephen’s School student?

Looking back now it was a really supportive place. The friendships I made there were invaluable and also the teachers at the time were genuinely interested in what we did, and still are to this day.

What was the first step you took after graduating from St Stephen’s?

I took a gap year to work and figure out what I wanted to study because I couldn't decide straight away. I also travelled to Europe.

Tell us more about what you're doing now! Have you had any memorable achievements since leaving St Stephen’s?

After working at hit92.9 for several years and creating incredible events and memories there, I went back to study the WAAPA post-graduate in Broadcasting last year. Now I've moved to Victoria to work as a TV journalist for WIN News which I'm loving.

Reflecting on your time as a St Stephen's student, how did your education prepare you for life outside of school?

I think the biggest thing school taught me was that I was the biggest stress-head and I never needed to be. Everything in school seemed like such a big deal at the time, but looking back I sweat the small stuff too much. Life throws things at you and you've just got to roll with it. The more stressed you get, the less clear everything becomes. So, don't stress!
