Recently, myself, along with 100 other students from around Australia were selected to be flown to Canberra to participate in the National Schools Constitutional Convention. This opportunity was incredible as it allowed me to get a closer look at the inner workings of parliament and the legal system and explore the related jobs and opportunities. I loved being able to talk with like-minded youth about the Political System and was amazed at how insightful discussions with members of parliament on areas that interested them and relevant topics of debate within the parliament were. I especially enjoyed listening in on question time and am immensely thankful to all those people who were involved in making it happen.
