WHO ARE THEY: I am a final year electrical engineering and data science minor student at the University of Queensland. I am passionate about solving the challenges posed by the power industry's transition to renewables using engineering and data science. I am an enthusiastic team player and always strive to bring out the best in everyone around me. I am also a big advocate of encouraging other young women to pursue careers in power engineering
KEY STRENGTHS: Communication, commitment and data science
WHY CHOOSE THIS DEGREE?
Where it all started for me
Completed High School
What did I end up studying?
Bachelor of Engineering (Hons), major in Electrical, minor in Data Science from the University of Queensland
Entering the industry
My previous work experience
My work placement experience
I have found work experience at Energy Queensland to be very rewarding. I only truly understood how the power network operates, as well as the complexities brought on by the renewable energy transition after work placement. Not only did I develop technical and communication skills, I have learnt a lot by speaking to other professionals and students (something that can't be taught at university)!
What I'm doing now
In the near future, I would like to be in a graduate role that allows me to solve power industry problems collaboratively and innovatively, and allows me to be the best version of myself. Later on, I want to continue playing my part in delivering safe, reliable and affordable clean energy to customers. I also want to continue encouraging young women to pursue careers in the power industry.
