UnCover Documentary: Overcoming adversity and forging ahead

Isobel Harris is studying towards a double degree in Bachelor of Politics and International Relations and Bachelor of Laws.

Growing up in Townsville, Queensland, Isobel always wanted to study Law. She was inspired to attend the University of Canberra after a school tour to the city as a Legal Studies student in Year 12. Isobel arrived in Canberra in January 2019, an eager and enthusiastic first-year student ready to embrace university life.

In her first year at UC though, Isobel encountered a few challenges, some greater than others – ultimately, her tenacity saw her triumph over these difficulties. About to embark on her second year of study now, Isobel’s spirit is undaunted and she is as excited as ever for what lies ahead – knowing that if she needs help at UC, it is always at hand, and all she needs to do is ask.
