During the eight years that she was working with the Navy, Gina was always thinking about how she could combine the things that she loved and make them her career.
Her love for the ocean kept her in places where she was working close by the sea, whether it was in submarines with the Navy or teaching Aqua Culture at Tafe, but her passion also came through in her hobbies:
After she finished her travels, Gina started Renewable Energy Engineering during the MidYear intake. While combining fulltime work with part time study has its challenging moments, for Gina it’s about always doing what interests you and not sticking with something that you don’t enjoy:
|Read the course handbook to find out about possible courses she could do.|
|Volunteered in Aqua Culture at Challenger Tafe in Fremantle.|
|Completed a diploma in Engineering to get more skills.|
|Explored study options in Renewable Energy online.|
|Chatted to family and friends to get different points of view.|
Took time out to travel around Australia and visit the Ports to think about what she really wanted to do.
