    "Anything is achievable"

    Coming from a farming background, I was always interested in studying biology. So I made the decision to move here and begin my studies at ECU.

    ECU offered me a course with exciting fieldwork and lecturers who were so welcoming. They even helped me find work experience positions! I have completed volunteer work at the Western Australian Herbarium.

    I’ve learned that anything is achievable if you set your mind to it and focus on your goals and dreams.
