How will I contribute to improving Indigenous health as a qualified medical practitioner or health worker?
I have chosen the Bachelor of Psychological Sciences because I have a particular interest in learning about human behaviour and studying how people think, speak, act and interact with others. My counselling skills has provided me with an insight and passion to develop these skills understanding and knowledge further.
I would like to gain these qualifications to enable me to be a strong advocate, role model and leader which is working towards closing the gap and researching, developing and implementing more culturally appropriate programs, resources, tools, knowledge and policies to address life’s adversities for Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people, their families and communities.
