Sarah Penfold is currently coming to the end of her second year of study at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst, where she has been undertaking a Bachelor of Education K - 12, majoring in Modern History. Sarah is highly passionate about providing an equitable education to all students. She has a strong desire to remain in a rural area, wanting to educate rural students who may not have as many opportunities as students living in urban areas.
Emma Dixon is in her third year of study at Charles Sturt University - Wagga Wagga, where she is undertaking a Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science (Diagnostic Radiography). Throughout the year Emma has completed a number of placement blocks. Emma has been using these blocks to develop her technical skills and improve her ability in working with departments ranging from 30 radiographers at the Orange Base Hospital. Emma's placement for her fourth year residency in 2023, will be at the Bathurst Base Hospital. She chose Bathurst in order to guide her career towards a position with NSW Health in a regional area.
Tiffany Penfold is in her fourth year of studying a Bachelor of Nursing and Bachelor of Paramedicine at the Faculty of Health Sciences - Canberra. Following the completion of her studies, Tiffany is hoping to work in flight paramedics and wants to become an advocate for the health opportunities for rural and remote communities.
