My Dream

I would love to see everybody in the world focussed on not advancing themselves, but advancing the people around them. Everyone has their own set of skills and talents and it’s about learning how we can use them in positive ways to service the community.

Last Words

Camberwell Girls has challenged me in many ways and that’s what I love about it. The support and encouragement has allowed me to push myself to learn more about my passions. A Camberwell Girls education is a privilege and as graduates, we need to remain humble and continue to educate ourselves and others so that we can move forward as a global community.
