Trinity Lutheran College
Amelia Grace is no stranger to hard work.
With her passion for maths and science, Amelia’s exceptional academic efforts saw her take out the award for Queensland’s Outstanding Academic Achiever at the QCE Achievement Awards in February.
As the top-performing student in the state, she was presented with a certificate, trophy and cheque for $4,000 by Minister for Education Kate Jones.
Now studying a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) at Griffith University, the former Trinity Lutheran College student said she’s always challenged herself to achieve her best.
‘I’ve always been academically motivated and believe my success depends on what I do right now,’ she said.
‘I enjoyed maths and science at school, so engineering felt like a logical career choice.’
As well as studying a Biology subject at Griffith University during Year 12, Amelia represented her school at the Model United Nations Assembly, which gave her a global perspective on a range of issues.
‘It really made it clear what’s important on a global scale, not just at a smaller community level,’ she said.
‘I’d love to work on community projects for an international company, so hope that experience will be valuable in the long run.’
