Amongst the family household bustle is Emma – who's earning her Bachelor of Communication, and planning out a career in the film industry.
Emma runs a bustling household – warm with children’s laughter, the smell of baked goods, a big veggie patch, and chickens hopping through the backyard lawn. Despite working tirelessly to provide a home that her boys adore, Emma knows the importance of making time for herself, to fulfil her own dreams. With the hope of moving into writing for film, or film production – Emma enrolled through us and is currently studying Griffith University’s Bachelor of Communication online.
Not many people can say they study in a cupboard, but this is Emma’s set up, which she can quickly pack out of the way. Emma needs to be clever in ways like this, in order to juggle a busy life. Studying at university online was once a frightening concept, but now, it’s just another normal aspect of Emma’s day. She’s got everything she needs to ensure her studies run smoothly, and knows that at any time, she can contact her tutors at Griffith about her learning material, or one of Open Universities Australia’s (OUA) Student Advisors, to help her manage the administration side of things.
Emma’s got a particular passion for film, and originally intended to move into film-related writing, but since taking up study, her direction has changed. She’s made a few great contacts that have steered her towards a new goal, working in film production. Like Emma has discovered – you never really know what’s around the corner. Not until you make a move.
