Personal Statement

I am currently completing the final year of a double degree of Bachelor of Design (Architecture)/Bachelor of Construction Management (Honours), and also hope to complete the Masters of Architecture (Design) in 2015. I study at Deakin University Waterfront Campus and have maintained a Distinction grade average. I have also completed a semester studying abroad at Jonkoping University School of Engineering in Sweden in 2012. This was a fantastic experience, in which I was able to learn about the built environment from a completely different perspective and help increase my independence, problem-solving and intercultural communication skills. \n\n\nAfter returning from study abroad I have volunteered as part of the Deakin Study Abroad Buddy Program, and have obtained 100 points to be eligible to receive the Global Citizenship award upon graduating. I am also taking part in the Deakin Construction Management Student Staff Committee in 2014 to assist in improving course structure and delivery.\n\n\nOver the following six months I will be completing an internship with the Green Building Council of Australia, a role which will involve researching Green Star rated project submissions, collating and presenting information, researching building rating tools and certification processes, and engaging with stakeholders. I have worked with people from many countries and cultures through studying and living overseas, and am currently thoroughly learning about sustainable building practices and Green Star accreditation. These experiences assist in having confidence in working in a global business economy and towards a sustainable outlook, both issues important to construction for today and the future. \n\n
