Q&A with Lucas

Why did you choose this area of study?

Business administration and information systems can help me optimise the knowledge that I have of the construction industry, hopefully towards a managerial position.

What is the best opportunity you have had at Deakin?

Spruik myself and extend myself through leadership opportunities in the Information Systems Council, and featuring in a video documentary about my time at Deakin.

What was great about appearing in the video?

Having had a significant accident three years ago, it can be easy to avoid challenges and revert to 'self-preservation' mode.

Have you had an particularly interesting moments at Deakin?

My third graduation will be! I think having a multi-day video about my life post-accident was an awesome period of self-reflection.

What would you like to do in the future?

Inspire others; give things a go while living a comfortable yet meaningful life. Being realistic is after all the most commonly travelled road towards mediocrity! Failure is a great opportunity to learn.
