What is your favorite thing about your Wentworth experience?
My favorite thing was just identifying myself a Wentworth student. I am proud of my studies in this institution and have met some really great people throughout my journey.
How has Wentworth prepared you for post-graduate life?
Wentworth has provided me with the necessary skills to be successful. Throughout my studies, I have remained a full-time employee. My coursework at Wentworth has been applied directly to my day-to-day work.
What are you planning to do after commencement?
I recently made a career change. My new employment as a project manager is with a high-end residential builder. I have been able to apply most of the curriculum taught in my studies, which have allowed me a smooth transition into this leadership role. I am feeling successful and this is largely due to the preparation Wentworth has taught me.
Who is someone at Wentworth that you’ve greatly admired or looked up to?
This question runs deeper than one person or group. I hold such a deep gratitude toward my educators, staff, and the students at Wentworth. The alignment of all three has made for a winning team.
What advice would you offer to students entering Wentworth?
Be proud to be a Wentworth student. Be passionate in your studies; that’s what you are here to do. Don’t accept anything less than your individual all. Plus, thrive to share your knowledge. Help your peers and others achieve their goals.
