After years as a stay-at-home mother Charlett decided she wanted to go back to study. Since then, she's been a William and Elizabeth Fisher Scholarship winner and also been awarded the Graduate Women Victoria prize.
"After being an at-home mother for several years, I was faced with the choice of returning to an outdated nursing career, or taking a risk to make a complete career change. I opted for the latter.
I am so glad I made the choice to return to study. It has been challenging to juggle all my roles but I hope to inspire my children to have dreams, set goals and not be discouraged by age, circumstances or adversity.
My success is a direct result of the opportunity I was given to study at Victoria University. I would definitely recommend VU as it offers everyone a chance in a supportive and friendly environment.
I hope to continue research work within the area of cancer, with the ultimate goal that the research makes a difference in someone’s life."
