Sasha enrolled at Thebarton Senior College in order to finish off her SACE through a Certificate IV in Information Technology. She was interested in studying at Thebarton because the course offered her SACE completion as well as credentials that would help her gain employment in the IT industry. Sasha enjoyed her studies, especially the web and game design aspects and the extracurricular activities that were on offer. Helping the college attend the Supernova pop culture convention was a particular highlight. Having completed the course, Sasha was successful in obtaining a place in the Bachelor of Information Technology course at Flinders University as well as an ICT apprenticeship with Australian Customs and Border Protection Services. Ultimately, she chose to move to Canberra where her qualification will allow her to finish her apprenticeship sooner than other school leavers.
