24-year-old university student who has a thirst for knowledge, a love of nature, a passion for equality, and a hankering for a good cup of tea.

My name is Emma but everyone just calls me Em. I’m a third year uni student studying a Bachelor of Ed (Primary) online full time. I recently came back to this course after deferring back in 2013 because I was trying to work full time while studying full time, which was impossible for me to maintain.

I’m now living back at home while I finish off my degree, and enjoying being able to fully dedicate myself to my studies! I have 3 casual jobs because I like to stay busy, and I volunteer for the Pyjama Foundation as well as a tutor to a foster kid. I also recently got a labrador puppy named Charlie who is very much like a toddler, so he takes up a lot of my time as well (he’s the cutie in the picture I’ve attached).

He’s very beautiful and is the little ray of sunshine in my life when I’m feeling overwhelmed with everything! I also have a partner who works on cruise ships so doing uni and having Charlie and all my work keeps me busy while he’s trekking around the world being paid to sing/travel (lucky duck!).

I’m so excited to finally be in the third year and be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel! Here’s to Semester 2 and finishing on a high!
