SparkGirl aka Anna Kalma

I'm a Student Ambassador for Queensland University of Technology

I absolutely love my job.  This job allows me the chance to speak to students who are trying to understand what the next step for themselves is.  I hear so many wonderful stories from students who are passionate about subjects and want to learn more about them.  I also get the chance to help students discover new interests and learn about areas.  Some which they never would have considered.  Seeing a student smile after understanding something is one of the best rewards possible. 


I recently met a famous artist who made the comment during our conversation, that “Failure is the outcome of doing something challenging”.

I think this statement highlights one of the most often overlooked areas. If you do not get something the first time, do not give up or despair; keep working towards it.
