It feels really good obviously you know to be recognised for what you've done, in terms of study and work. It's really something to be proud of.

For those students who are a studying full-time and want to get into work-force, it can be quite frustrating.

My advice to them is just keep at it, don't lose hope, there's always light at the end of the tunnel. Network, get to know people.

I always encourage students to invest their time in healthy activities.

So volunteer, if they can't get full time work; try to volunteer in their field and build a network and pick some skills that way.

It's always good motivation when you're recognised for something that you have achieved. It motivates you to do better.

I'm a big believer in, you know, if you follow your passion, success will follow you. So I think it just encourages me to keep following my passion.
