Meet Regina, a busy Bachelor of Commerce student at Curtin University, specialising in Event Management and Project Management. Her journey through university has been marked by a series of twists and turns, each contributing to her discovery of her true passions. ✨

Regina’s path to commerce although not straightforward, is a common one. With many talents, passions and a strong set of values, finding a degree that fuels and fulfils her has proven to be a long and windy road.

In school, Regina failed ATAR, just like some of her family members. But, where some of her family took gap years or didn’t return to university, she wanted to try a new path and begin tertiary study immediately. Initially, she was drawn to study her high school passion of performing arts. As a talented musician (who still performs in her band ‘The Zingers’) and the arts captain at her high school, she was sure she wanted to pursue a career in this passion, however rigid commitments required when studying at Arts schools like WAAPA, such as having minimal work commitments and the full-time study load, deterred her. Instead, she found herself choosing to study Commerce at Curtin, because she found it to be a degree where she could start and then figure things out whilst studying.

Even after immersing herself in the degree, and extracurriculars surrounding her commerce major, like being the head of marketing within Curtin Women in Business (WIB) Club, she still couldn’t find her exact passion. Regina has always had a passion for giving back to the community and involving herself in opportunities where she can do this, so she stuck with the WIB club. Whilst marketing for WIB’s events, she realised that there were other aspects of the club that she was far more interested in, such as the event planning side, so she swapped roles from marketing to pitching and managing events. Regina realised she had found her calling, leading her to pursue the Event Management and Project Management major instead. 📋🌟

Meet Rohan, a nonchalant third-year Medical student, who is intrinsically motivated to make the world a better place. 🧠✨

Rohan has always been a high achiever, in high school, he chose to study demanding subjects such as Math Specialist, Methods, Chemistry, Physics, and English, so medicine felt like the right transition for his next phase of study. Over his life, he has always been deeply interested in science, however, also shared that same interest in human connection, and hoped to create a career for himself one day that combines them both.

Rohan attributes his drive and motivation for study to the satisfaction he feels once an item is ticked off his to-do list. He has not felt external pressure to accomplish or strive for his current academic achievements, but he does so because he finds joy in it, and has been that way since high school. Since arriving at university, Rohan found that the transition to this new type of study posed challenges, while his high school routine included structured study sessions, university life offered him a flexibility that he wasn’t used to. Over the years, Rohan has been refining his approach and has found that each university year requires a shift in managing time, organisation, and academic responsibilities.

In his first year, Rohan focused on finding a balance between relaxation and study, recognising the importance of downtime in maintaining his mental well-being. As he progressed into his second year, he refined his study routine, dedicating specific blocks of time for study and incorporating breaks for meals and relaxation. This incremental adjustment has prepared him for the amplified responsibilities that his third year brings, which he confesses offers him very little breaks and downtime. 🫣
