Brady counting down to start of university
BRADY Urquhart is grateful his hardwork inYear 12 resulted in an offer to do a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of the Sunshine Coast.
Several stints of work experience with an accountant confirmed the Mundubbera boy’s decision to make it his profession.
And he can’t wait to get started.
“My aunt, Danielle Maudsley is an accountant in Kingaroy and I’ve always hoped to work with her one day,” Brady said.
“Before Christmas she went round to all my relations and suggested what they should buy me so now I have just about everything I need for uni which is great.”
Since finishing school at Gayndah State College in November, Brady has been working at La Famille Cafe to save money for the year ahead.
“I’ve been getting heaps of hours filling in while other staff take holidays but next Wednesday will be my last day,” he said.
“I’m going to settle into the student house I’m sharing with six others at Sippy Downs and try to find a part-time job before orientation week which starts on February 18.”
Apart from lectures which start at 9am and finish at 8pm on Wednesdays, Brady said he was happy with his timetable which would give him Monday afternoons, Tuesdays and the weekends to work.
Although he doesn’t have a car and still has many hours to accumulate before he can go for his licence, he has friends on the Sunshine Coast and intends to buy a pushbike.
“Several of my classmates got in at the Sunny Coast and older past pupils of Gayndah State College are there too so there’ll be plenty of people I know,” he said.
“I can’t wait.”
OFF TO UNI: Mundubbera's Brady Urquhart has accepted an offer from the University of the Sunshine Coast to complete a Bachelor of Commerce (accounting) and is looking forward to the challenges ahead.
