A Little About Me

I'm currently in Year 11 studying English, General Maths, Legal Studies, Psychology, Business Management and 3/4 Biology

I want to achieve my best in school and continue volunteering with the State Emergence Service and local theatre groups and hopefully one day become a a paramedic or become a well know Audio Visual Tech or Stage Manager. I'm so usure tho like i love working AV but it's not regular and doesn't pay as well as a paramedic


I lived in Melbourne till 2010 and now currently in Gippsland.
Volunteers as a emergency responder (junior) and theatre lighting and sound tech
I love love looove camping and late night drives
I want to travel the world (South America, Europe, India)
Try as many things as I can like skydiving and bungee jumping, overseas relief, abseiling etc
Addicted to reading books like milk and honey
Loves herbal tea.

When I was younger I wanted to be a primary school teacher.
When I was 6 I wanted to be a race car driver and a mechanic.
When I was 12 I wanted to be an actress.
When i was 13 I wanted to fly jets in the Air Force.
Since I was 15 I wanted to be a paramedic or a Outdoor Educator (Did work experience at Lord Somers Camp)

Over the past year I've considered going into the Audio Visual industry as a Lighting/Sound Tech as I've got experience from working paid gigs and and volunteer and I've really enjoyed it...Apart from the sexism I've gotten for being the only female technician in in the area which is so frusturating and the pessimist in me is waiting for the day I get turned down a job cause I'm female
Open spoiler if you're interesting in reading my experiences as a technician PS ain't very interesting
Spoiler
Lighting Tech / Load In/Out Crew for Summer Nights 2019
- Rigging and patching of lights, mics and speakers
(Worked with The Teskey Brothers, Saskwatch and Caiti Baker)

Lighting tech for a local theatre group
-Rigging and patching and operation of board (all stage lights) and domes (followspots/moving spotlight)

Tech manager for school productions
- Rigging and patching of lights
-Teaching new techs how to operate board and domes

Lighting Tech and Sound tech/mic tech for talent/perfomance nights
-Rigging and patching of lights
-Putting/Taking off mics on singers and actors
-Repairing mics
I'm currently working as a Pool Lifeguard and Party Instructor and am hoping to become a Swim Teacher.
Back with the paramedic thing I've been volunteering with VICSES for just over a year and a half and I enjoy serving the community so that what was led me to thinking I could be a paramedic and the more I looked into it the more interested I became and that ideas stuck with me since.
Like I'm heading with idea so far cause out of all my ideas it requires the highest ATAR (85+) but i really don't know where I'm going  ???

Some of you may have read this post on other parts of forums but thought I might collate it all and write a lil about myself! More to come...

Hey Evolio!
Ooft, 3/4....compared to 1/2 im getting royally f__ked by the subject like there is SO MUCH CONTENT. I really enjoy leaning about cells and how they function like its so interesting. Same with DNA like i really enjoyed learning about DNA
I've had 1 friend drop out cause they failed 1/2 and failed the first 3/4 sac and another considering dropping it under said circumstances.

Wbu, Why are you doing bio?? What made u pick it?

I'm doing biology because I find it really interesting,especially because we can relate it to our lives.
Also, now, I really enjoy doing those application questions for biology because we need to put so much detail in and make sure we can gain all those marks! To me, it's like a game! Hahaha. We need to score as many points as we can. Also, there's so much to biology than just the content. It follows you everywhere.
 ;D ;D

Just hopping in to say I LOVE this way of describing Biology - both in and of there being so much biology all around us (there really is!) and trying to give as much detail as possible feeling like a game. What an awesome perspective! :D
Wishing you both all the best with your studies (and in general). You've got this!

Those cases both seem interesting, what made you find the experience informative?. I remember doing something similar when I did Legal Studies and recall being a lot more interested in the County Court case than the Supreme Court case as the SCC was going over some very boring details at the time of attendance.

It's one thing to sit in a class room and learn from a textbook but being able to see cases take place really consolidated my understanding - for example in the Supreme Court we were there for both the prosecution and the defences opening statements and the defence counsel explained to the jury the burden of proof/presumption of innocence and that they had to believe he is guilty beyond reasonable doubt.

In the County Court we watched the prosecution cross-examine one of the accused, and found it really interesting but at the same time not as the barister who was cross-examining was getting very annoyed and flustered at the responses one of the accused were giving (had a very strong alibi).
