Here’s a short history of what I’ve been up to in the past year or so.
A project which features interviews with people in Melbourne. I did everything from designing the website to interviewing and editing the transcript.
I was part of the ‘21 Winter cohort as one of 150 out of 735 applicants.
I manage a team of 3 for the school-student relations team of my high school's alumni association. I've been leading the team with the planning and roll-out of a workshop program for the students there.
I founded a start-up in September of 2021 with 5 other Startmate Fellows, and left 2 months later. I'm now better at having hard conversations (still working on this) and taking action vs spending time planning.
I volunteered at Adelaide's premier start-up festival and now intern there.
Interviewed Joel Connolly (Blackbird VC) and Lauren Capelin (Startmate) for a podcast. This was a few months after graduating when I didn’t know what to do next. Joel spoke on a panel around advice for university students and I sat there thinking ‘more people should know about this’ so reached out to him. I also owe Joel and Fei (a mentor) for their support and keeping me on track. Without them these episodes would’ve stayed on my computer.
In my last year of uni I was a generalist at a student commmunity for medtech enthusiasts. I produced & hosted a webinar and made an industry guide on the Australian medtech space. I was awarded the Most Improved Player at the end of my time there.
