Anna Day | Aspire
Anna began working with ASPIRE in 2017 as a Regional Project Officer based in the small town of Gilgandra in the central-west of NSW. She is familiar with the challenges regional, rural and remote students face in pursuing Higher Education and is passionate about helping country kids pursue their dreams. The regional hub is unique as Anna and her colleague Tom are around 500 kilometres away from the UNSW campus and the rest of the ASPIRE team.
Anna and Tom work closely with a number of regional schools and communities to support students to reach their full potential. No week is ever the same and Anna enjoys travelling the vast distances across NSW to visit ASPIRE partner schools, with her work week varying from delivering in-school workshops, holding local events, participating in community activities to taking students to Sydney visit the UNSW campus.
Hailing from the central-west, in her spare time Anna can be found helping out on the family farm and looking after orphaned baby lambs.
