The Elite Athlete Program has helped me through a lot of my studying. I personally love knowing I have someone in my back corner with my workload when basketball is getting tough, and you can’t be at 100% when you're moving all over the place. And then to get access to dietitians and strength and conditioning coaches has been pretty amazing.

I think balancing the workload between studying and my sport has definitely been an ongoing challenge for the last three years. The Elite Athlete Program has allowed me to have some sort of leeway and understanding with regards to my assessments, like when I’m away representing La Trobe for Uni Nationals. That's allowed me to have that extra time to focus on assessments so I can actually submit my work and achieve the best results in my undergrad for the last three years.
