"My family comes from humble beginnings and I’m first generation Australian. I was very fortunate to start at Wesley’s Elsternwick Campus on a General Excellence scholarship. Hard work and effort have been instilled in me from a young age and I was thrilled to achieve the highest possible ATAR of 99.95. It shows that determination and drive to succeed really do pay off! I am now studying a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne and plan to go on to study medicine. I have immense gratitude for my teachers, the Wesley community and family and friends who have supported me throughout my journey."
