CQUni Bachelor of Psychology alumnus Natasha Trask is giving back as an academic casual teacher at the Rockhampton Campus. After graduating in 2015 and then following up with her Honours and Masters in Psychology (all whilst working full-time and caring for two children), Natasha decided to pass on what she’d learned to future students, as a teacher. Natasha also manages her own private psychology practice.
What was a recent highlight of your life?
Finishing study after a long six years and knowing now that this career is my passion!
Who has made an impact on your life? Why?
There are too many wonderful people who have made positive impacts on my life, but I think the common factor is that they were all inspiring, supportive and passionate people who shared their time and knowledge freely with others.
Have there been any awkward moments while you’ve been at CQUni?
One awkward moment was at my graduation ceremony for my Masters of Clinical Psychology when I realised I’d been wearing the mortarboard backwards the whole day.
Describe the greatest moment of your life so far?
Becoming a mother has and will always be the greatest moment of my life.
The weekend is free – what would you do?
Spend it at the beach, relaxing in the warmth of the sun with a good book!
Which country in the world would you most like to visit?
I have a life-goal to travel and live in Italy! The scenery, the food, the wine – oh, one day!
