#MericiMoment Wall of Words - Carlia Zedde, Class of 2014

The word I have selected is OPPORTUNITY as Merici has provided me with so many opportunities both when I was at school, and after graduating. Opportunities in terms of education that have allowed me to find my passion and pursue this pathway in teaching, whilst aspiring to be like the many wonderful teachers I had at Merici. Opportunities to truely figure out who I am, to gain confidence, to be myself, express myself and to learn to love myself.

After graduating from Merici in 2014 I accepted an early entry offer into the Bachelor of Physiotherapy degree at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Albury. I have loved every moment of my last three years at university, and though challenging, I have built on the many skills I developed at Merici. The great opportunities I have had at CSU include representing CSU at the Eastern Uni Games for Volleyball, receiving an Executive Dean’s Award, being accepted into the Integrated Honours program and presenting my honours project at the CSU Science Symposium in Wagga.

I fondly remember my time here at Merici. While here I was involved in lots of dance and drama activities. I thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Rock Eisstedfods and Drama productions. Towards the end of my time at Merici  I made a massive move into the world of art and after finishing school went on to the Campus of Art and undertook the study of ceramics at the ANU.

I have fond memories of my time at Merici College and made lifelong friends during my years there. It is hard to believe that it has been nearly 15 years since graduating from Merici, but sharing milestone life events with those friends makes it hard to believe that more time hasn’t elapsed.
