In 2012 I finished my Masters in Social Change Development for the University of Newcastle. In 2013 I began working for an organisation called South Western Regional Tenants Association. In June 2014 I left that position. I am currently again studying my Certification IV in Assessment and Training (Hoping to become a TAFE teacher) and writing again.
