This year our Class of 2012 are celebrating their 10 year anniversary. Kelsey Houwen, our 2012 Head Girl, shares her story since graduating from the College.
What did you do after finishing Year 12?
After I finished Year 12 I moved straight to Perth to study at UWA. I lived on campus for four years while I completed my studies, which I highly recommend to regional students if you have the opportunity. I completed my law degree in 2020 and began working at the District Court of Western Australia. I did a little travel while I was studying but planned to do more when I finished uni. Unfortunately, COVID derailed that plan so I hope in the next couple of years I can fit some more overseas holidays in!
What are you up to now?
Nowadays I live in Perth with my partner, Matt, and I am working as a criminal lawyer at the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Reflection on your time at Nagle
I have very fond memories of my time at Nagle. I had such a fantastic experience, and my friends from school are still some of my closest friends. I also appreciate all the support and guidance that the staff gave me throughout high school.
Any advice for our students?
Enjoy your time at school, particularly with the people around you. It is cliche to say, but it does go by pretty quickly and soon you will miss seeing your school friends every day. And try not to worry too much about what life after school is going to look like. My path to where I am today was by no means smooth, but somehow all the little mishaps led me right to where I am meant to be.
Everybody has a story and we always love to hear from our Alumni, on where they are now and how they got there. Their achievements and challenges, their thoughts and observations, could serve as an inspiration to fellow Alumni, as well as current and prospective students.
