About

Hi everyone!

As I said in my home page I live in Rockhampton, Queensland. I do enjoy living in Rockhampton as I have all my family and friends here and it is only a 25 minute drive to the beach, which I love! Although, as it is only a small town, I do want to move away when I am older to a city like Gold Coast or Melbourne.

I study fulltime at CQU completing my Bachelor of Accounting. I am extremely lucky to have found something that I love doing. All throughout my schooling I have been very good at maths and working with numbers so it makes sense to be completing an accounting degree.

When I am not studying, I am usually at work. In 2015, I was lucky enough to be offered an accounting internship at Aurizon. Aurizon is a transport company; you have probably seen their logo on the side of a train before. We transport coal and freight mostly via trains, however also transport via trucks as well. I absolutely love my job and the team I work with. They are extremely nice and accepting people and have all completed their Bachelor of Accounting and CPA so they are able to relate to everything I am currently going through. One of the best experiences I have had during my job was the opportunity to drive a coal train. It was very exciting to be completely in control of a train with over 100 carriages on the back!

In my spare time I play lots of hockey. I have played it since I was just 10 years old and love the sport. One of my biggest successes in hockey was the opportunity to play in Singapore for the first ever recognised indigenous hockey team to play in an international competition. It was an amazing experience to be able to play against different cultures and to also share with the world our own Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. As this was such a big achievement, we had a documentary made on our team which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnLcYjiSj5M

I think that is enough about myself now. Please feel free to leave a comment and say hi as I would love to get to know more about everyone.
