As the first in her family to pursue higher education and embark on a legal career, Kayla embraced the mantle of responsibility and determination. Melbourne's atmosphere of self-reliance and independence nurtured her journey of self-discovery, fostering personal growth and shaping her character.
“Choosing RMIT for my tertiary education has proven to be the best decision I ever made, largely due to the institution's position within the heart of Melbourne.
The opportunities that this location has afforded me in terms of networking, internships, and clinical placements have been instrumental in shaping both my academic path and my personal growth,” she said.
Kayla’s journey at RMIT extended far beyond academics. She engaged in various extracurricular activities, such as participation in student committees and advisory boards, as well as pursuing internships and clinical legal placements.
“I had the privilege of engaging in various extracurricular activities, including participation in the LLB Student Staff Consultative Committee, the RMIT Law Advisory Board, the RMIT University Student Union, and the RMIT Law Students’ Society,” she shared.
As the President of the RMIT Law Students’ Society, Kayla not only contributed to the academic community but also developed essential competencies in team leadership, public speaking, and event coordination. These skills will undoubtedly prove invaluable in her legal career.
My university journey was not confined to academics alone – it resembled an intricate mosaic of experience, with each individual component serving as a distinct chance for personal development, forging connections and contributing to the community. These encounters not only enhanced my academic endeavours but also furnished me with priceless skills and outlooks as I venture into the professional sphere.
