Portrait of Alex


Alex is a 25-year-old law graduate who has developed a strong passion for disability human rights during her time at Melbourne Law School. Originally from Bendigo, Alex moved to Melbourne to live and study independently in 2010, overcoming many of the barriers often associated with having a disability.

Alex has a strong passion for travel and loves watching the looks on airport staff faces as she wheels away from them after landing with a giant ‘lap-pack’ and no one waiting to pick her up. Alex has experienced working in a private law firm, Victoria Legal Aid, the Department of Health and Human Services and as a research assistant at the University of Melbourne. Alex hopes to pursue a career in disability human rights advocacy.
