I remember when I was back in high school in year 12, meeting an In2Uni mentor. Coming from a rural town with limited opportunities she inspired me to think about my future and goals. Now I’m an In2Uni mentor and I love passing on my passion and knowledge to students to excite them about what they can achieve. Lily Sheridan In2Uni mentor
