When Taylah was in Year 12, tension was running high in the school hallways but she didn't let the pressure of getting a high ATAR score worry her.
“Teachers always told us that exams were important… (that) you need to get a high ATAR score or you won’t have many options,” Taylah recalls, “but I never felt too much pressure because I knew that no matter what, I would always have an option to get into what I wanted”.
After high school, Taylah enrolled in a few core subjects from Griffith University's Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice through Open Universities Australia (OUA). From there, she got accepted into the full degree and hasn't looked back.
A career in the justice system is what Taylah is working towards. She intends to continue studying with Griffith University through OUA, moving onto the Graduate Certificate or Masters.
