JRNL101: Peer Potraits

Some University students don’t know what their dream is. They float and let the wind take them. But for Tayla Robin, her dreams are very clear. Her double degree has been carefully picked so she can “be in every corner of creative writing.” Being a novelist is the big dream and to ease her way through “the cutthroat process of getting a book published” Tayla will work as an editor, gaining valuable publishing experience. Being solely reliant on her fiction books is Tayla’s dream and her degree will take her all the way there.
With a big smile, comes big dreams. Kimberly Perlowski is a student here at UOW. Her dream is to write for a fashion magazine and to surround herself with clothes. “The pin board is blank now, but soon it’ll be with covered with magazine clippings, photos of my loved ones and Disney quotes.” Living on Campus East is a stepping stone for Kim; one day, she’ll be living in Sydney writing for magazines and chasing her dream. For lots of university students, following their dream leads them to all sorts of interesting places.
Some see their dreams as simply a goal to achieve, while others see it as a hallway of doors, full of opportunity. Cat Wilson has a dream that will take her through a degree in International studies and media. “International Studies was extremely exciting for me cause it allowed me to pursue my interest in International affairs and relations whilst also putting me on the road to what I’ve always wanted to do which is Media” Following her dream, Cat will be making new friends and having plenty of new experiences on the way which she is very excited about.
