KAITLYN George really does live up to her school’s 2017 motto: ‘‘Be not afraid, aim high and dream great things.’’
The 17-year-old St Augustine’s College student juggles her school subjects — which would leave most of us with a migraine — with enviable aplomb.
Plus, it’s clear she loves every minute of it.
An avid learner, Kaitlyn has recently been recognised for her keen mind, awarded an Infrastructure Network Goulburn Valley maths and science award.
‘‘It was pretty cool,’’ she said, brushing off the massive honour.
In fact, she brushes off most of her achievements with a similar quiet humility.
Currently tutoring maths and attending the Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars Program at Melbourne University, the Year 11 student has also fast-tracked Year 12 psychology this year.
And things won’t slow down next year — she’ll be studying a history subject through La Trobe University in Shepparton.
Despite being an all-rounder, Kaitlyn doesn’t hesitate to name her dream career.
‘‘I would love to study criminal psychology — like forensic psychology. I’m interested in both psychology and criminology and would love to combine them,’’ she said.
‘‘I’m intrigued by what influences our behaviour as humans.’’
