"I have felt a sense of belonging at ECU since my first day; lecturers and tutors are welcoming and keen to share their knowledge and expertise.
As a mature-age student I was a little apprehensive about being the odd one out in class, but I’ve made a point of participating in events and embracing uni life. Instead of being a barrier, my life experience has proved to be an asset to my study experience.
In 2007 I won the Nicholson Shield for ‘Negotiating’ and the D.P. Murphy medal for 'Best Orator'. In the same year I was part of a team that represented ECU at the ALSA Conference in Canberra in a series of negotiating competitions. In 2008 I was a finalist in the Tottle Shield mooting competition. In 2009 I was selected to be part of an ECU team for the LAW ASIA Competition in Ho Chi Minh City. The experience of participating with 16 other universities from the Asian region, together with a field of international judges, was tremendous and unforgettable."
