Something prompted me to do a search to try and find something and found that Uni SA do keep an archive of their promotional campaigns.
Whenever the kids do well at school I tell them it's because of their Mum's genes not mine. I maintain that Audrey and Eli succeed in spite of me rather than because of me! Amy would hate that I posted this - she was always much more modest about her abilities than I ever have been with my much more meagre successes.
Here's what it reads;
I decided to bite the bullet and just do it
I was a travel agent for 12 years and although I enjoyed the work I felt it was time for a change. I had thought of going to university and finally decided to bite the bullet and ‘just do it’.
I have always been interested in international studies, particularly politics and international relations. Studying at uni made me more aware of political and historical situations in other countries and how these affect Australia.
My UniSA lecturers were enthusiastic, easy to talk to and always available if I had questions. One lecturer had worked for the government and passed on his experience in that area - which was great!
I am currently working and training in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade where I prepare ministerial briefings and correspondence, monitor both political and trade issues (nationally and internationally), and liaise with other government departments. The work is varied and stimulating and there are many opportunities to work overseas to represent Australia.
