Dancing into my future

My name is Meridah Hunter and I have recently started my first year at CQUniversity studying the Bachelor of Creative Arts course majoring in dance. This course is CQUniversity’s first Creative Arts course in Cairns, and majors in contemporary dance, popular music and acting.

Before I started the course, I was very nervous and excited at the same time. I didn’t know what to expect from the course, the lectures, the university and the other students. However, I very quickly felt as if I had joined one big family.

Dedication to Education

My name is Taylor O’Leary. As of 2014 I became enrolled in the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood). I applied at CQUniversity as a school leaver in 2013 and originally studied psychology and health in the Bachelor of Arts course.

Building my career pyramid

My pyramid: the foundation

I like to think of my career as a sturdy, long-lasting Egyptian pyramid which can stand the test of time due to the years of hard work and dedication. I began my university journey fresh out of high school when I enrolled in a Bachelor of Psychological Science full-time. I quickly learnt that lecturers and tutors won’t hassle you to get your work in on time and they won’t be walking around the lecture theatre looking over your shoulder to make sure you’re copying the notes from the board.

Steps towards my future career

When spinal surgery prevented me from finishing my final year of high school, I was faced with a difficult decision; repeat grade 12 or find an alternate route into University.
