Amy McIlwraith

What are you studying?

Finance and economics.

How do you want to make a difference in the world?

I want to help other people and develop more sustainable ways to protect our world.

What you are interested in outside of Uni and work?

I love the outdoors and going to the beach! A few years ago I represented Australia in the Junior Synchronised Swimming Team. I also enjoy skiing and seeing the natural beauty of the world!

If you had any advice for your fellow students about tackling university or preparing for the 'real' world, what would it be?

To do what you enjoy because that's the most important thing in life.

What was your fondest memory from university so far?

I love going to uni and seeing my friends and catching up with everyone. It's also great when a lecturer or tutor has a good sense of humour, it makes it much more fun!

Tell me how you first got involved in with accounting/business, what inspired you?

I studied business and accounting at school and really enjoyed it so decided it would be a possibly career path for me. I then went on to study at university and hope to see myself in this field in the near future.
