Tom. Diverse, educational and a bit crazy.

Text. What did you want to be when you grew up?

Jack. The thing that sticks in my mind ‘cause I’d still, it’d be a bit of a pipe dream, would be to own an NBA franchise over in America.

Tam. I wanted to be an astronaut, a researcher and at one point even a priest.

Qandeel. I wanted to be a teenage mutant ninja turtle but I don’t think that was an option so I wanted to become a pilot.

Text. What’s your best memory from your time as a graduate?

Paul. It’s hard to choose a memorable part of it because I feel like grown a lot throughout the program both personally and professionally.

Vision. Qandeel and team member producing video.

Qandeel. I think definitely making the video during the GLS week with my team, that was definitely the best doing the voiceover.

Vision. Graduate students making hats.

Jack. Day one, day one for sure because we got an activity where we had to make hats out of random creative stuff. I didn’t understand the purpose of it at the time but looking back on it now it took us out of our comfort zones.

Calvin. First week I felt pretty nervous but I think that went away pretty quickly.

Vision. Freya modelling her hat and all graduates posing for a photo.

Freya. I loved coming in to meet everyone in a similar stage and to grow with them.

Laura. Meeting everyone, I think we were all just as nervous as each other.

Vision. Emma and grads posing for photo and chatting with each other.

Emma. I remember on the first day I was so nervous, I was basically shaking as I like came into the room, but I felt so at ease within the first hour just being around the other grads.

Text. What are your next career steps?

Anna. I’m going to be the safety team in the Initiatives space.

Vision. Time lapse photography of work on construction project.

Miko. To take my knowledge from what I’ve learnt with LXRP and travel with it, especially working in projects that are new projects, so being able to say, you know, in 10 or 15 years’ time I was a part of a team that built that from the ground up.

Vision. Time lapse photography of work on construction project.

Calvin. I’m going to be a project engineer for the Southern Program Alliance.

Calvin. Make sure you ask questions.

Tom. You always ask a question.

Nicole. Ask questions.

Tam. Ask as many questions as you can.

Qandeel. You always ask questions ‘cause you’re going to be very overwhelmed in your first couple of weeks.

Emma. Always be open to new opportunities.

Jack. Say yes to those opportunities.

Laura. Say yes and take every opportunity you can.

Will. Seek out people in the workplace that you want to be like.

Freya. And also know your worth, push to be challenged if you can handle it.

Miko. And definitely, like, get to know your team, hang out with your team because they’re the people who you spend the most time with.
