Sahana Rose is currently studying towards a Bachelor of Social Work, which she began in 2014 and will complete by the end of trimester 2, 2018.
As well as being on the Student Advisory Board, she is also a student member of the Academic Board.
“Studying through the Open Polytechnic has given me the flexibility and freedom to continue working, allowing me to study and maintain financial stability,” says Sahana.
“Currently I have a few jobs. My main job is with Access Home Health as a community worker. This involves visiting elderly client’s at home to assist them to continue living independently. My role is primarily in medication, so I ensure clients remember to take the correct medication.”
“I would like to wish everyone starting out on their study journey, good luck.” 😊
