I think that working in the field of social welfare you really get to experience people's achievements with them and I think that's what really keeps you driving in your field of practice.
I decided to do the Bachelor of Social Welfare at Southern Cross Uni because I was in a role where I felt it was quite punitive to the people and it did not really align with my values.
Instead of working against people I really wanted to go and upskill myself so that I could work alongside people.
The reason why I love Southern Cross Uni is because we have good facilities, academic skills, international student support, they follow-up and help me in everything I want.
I got a chance to be mentored.
The Bachelor of Social Welfare will really resonate with a person who is willing to sit down and listen to have empathy for somebody and to walk alongside somebody in their journey.
I'd say that the degree and the learning have become an intrinsic part of my life. It's just something that I generally do now on a daily basis, I pick a textbook, I read or I do a little bit of writing.
I'd just say jump in, you know, really go for it.
