"I chose to study the Master of Environment at the University of Melbourne because of all the amazing academic opportunities and facilities available to students. I have tailored my course to focus on the more socio-political aspect of environmental issues, combined with subjects exploring the science behind global environmental problems. I am very passionate about making a difference. I'm so inspired by the same passion held by my peers and teachers, and all the amazing work that they are doing in the community.”
