Jessica High, of Merimbula, is on top of the world after achieving an ATAR of 96.8, the highest score of all students at Eden Marine High School. Now she is waiting to hear if she has a place at ANU where she hopes to study international relations.
Jessica has already been offered a $3000 scholarship from Wollongong University but is holding out for the place she has set her heart on, ANU.
“I really am hoping to get in. I want to eventually get into the public service in the area of foreign policy.”
Jessica is planning a career in Canberra either with DFAT or with ASIO. Jessica has a passion for foreign policy and hopes to be accepted on the three-year degree course in international relations at ANU. She believes that there is much that could be improved in Australia’s foreign policy both at a trade and humanitarian level.
Mum, Angi High said: “Her mission was to get 95 and this is better than anticipated. I am so proud of her.”
