Dream big at career expo
University has opened up a world of opportunities for Kirralee Parsons.
The 21-year-old from Thorneside has taken a unique study path, enrolling in a double degree in public health and media and communication at QUT.
Kirralee's dream is to work in international health and she hopes to use her skills in preventative health and communication to help people in developing countries.
"I want to educate people and prevent them from getting sick - not just physical bandaid solutions, but a holistic approach to health," she said.
The bubbly student, who shaved her long hair to raise money for the World's Greatest Shave, volunteers with World Vision Queensland and The Oaktree Foundation as well as studying.
Kirralee will be among friendly faces at QUT's stand at the National Careers and Employment Expo in Brisbane from May 4-5, where prospective students can find out about courses, career paths and studying at QUT.
She urged all aspiring university students to come along.
"There are so many options available and it's inspiring to hear what other people are doing," Kirralee said.
"It might open your mind to opportunities you didn't know about before."
