What is your current job / role?

I’m still in my final year at university, but I will be joining EY next year as an Actuarial Consultant. I’m also a mathematics teacher at a tutoring company called Matrix Education during my time at uni.    

Did you always aspire to be in the job position you currently hold? 

Until year 11 I didn’t really have an idea on what would be right for me. I knew that I liked being curious and I enjoyed math the most out of the subjects I did.

In year 11 and 12, I had passionate teachers which ultimately inspired me to do something in mathematics. I had the opportunity to enrol in Actuarial Studies and Statistics at UNSW, which is what I pursued.

It took me 4 years (i.e. my entire time at university) to figure out what an actuary even is (basically calculates risk for businesses like banks and insurance companies using statistics). It seems quite interesting! So I didn’t always aspire for this job position / career, but I did aspire to work in this field.
