"My Hawthorn education, both academic and extra-curricular, gave me many opportunities to step outside my comfort zone. As a result, I gained confidence and skills because of these chances to learn. Taking responsibility for the quality of my work has also stuck with me, especially in academic and professional spheres were there isn't the same level of support there was at Hawthorn."
