She is now three years into the degree and is enjoying the study and believes she has found the right career for her.

“This is definitely where I am supposed to be and I am loving it,” Isabella told News Of The Area.

Isabella undertook a prac last year and really enjoyed it, while next year is essentially all placement with hands on experience.

“I’m excited for the adventure and excited to see where I will go for work placement next year and to see new places.”

Her younger brother Samuel was a recipient of this year’s scholarship funding.

Having just finished his HSC studies, Samuel is now off to university to study medical engineering.

Samuel is excited about the opportunities that the scholarship will mean to his future, viewing every dollar as another opportunity.

In the long term once he completes his degree he hopes to be involved in inventing and the production of medical devices.
