It’s a sunny Friday morning at The University of Queensland in Brisbane, and a procession of black-gowned and trencher-capped students has streamed into the UQ Centre. For each of them, the day marks a major celebration – of the completion of their university study and the dawning of global opportunities.
On the day, School of Law 2016 Semester 1 valedictorian, Camille Boileau, shared an inspirational address to her fellow law graduates.
“We have tools that equip us to make change and respond to challenges, and we have been around people who are so motivated and make it so easy to be involved with opportunities and connect with other graduates.
“There is a strong community at UQ and that is maintained once you graduate. People like to connect you with other like-minded people or people who might be able to help you professionally.”
