Adriana Bird

Adriana is studying for a BSc in Environmental Science and Geography, as well as Law.

“I didn’t get into Part II the first time around. I always did well in high school so failing was unexpected and really challenging at first. However looking back, this was the best thing that could have happened as the bubble popped and events took place that gave me a reality check.

“It made me realise that I really wanted to study law and have learnt since that failures can lead to the greatest of successes. I don't take it for granted that I'm here.

“Law school isn't just giving me a degree, it has helped me connect with my heritage, discover new passions and make friends for life. My greatest lesson has been that our true character is not defined by our successes, but by what we do when we don't succeed.”
