I participated in the 2015 Indigenous Australian Engineering Summer School and Student workshop.
The IAESS encouraged me to become more motivated in working towards my future. It was recommended to me by a teacher at my school who thought I possessed similar qualities to an engineer. The program itself was very insightful to the different kinds of engineering and helped me decide the career I wish to pursue. I am now studying environmental engineering at the University of Wollongong. I would encourage anyone thinking of participating in the summer school to JUST DO IT, as it was so much fun and allowed me to make good friends from all over the country, many of which I am still in contact with.
