At last week’s ASPIRE Awards Evening the QAA was delighted to recognise Andrew
Stevenson as the recipient of the 2018 Outstanding Alumna of the Year.
graduating from QACI in 2015, Andrew has embraced the opportunity to
continue his passion for creative thinking and communication,
undertaking studies in theatre, firstly at QUT and then Monash
University in Melbourne.
Whilst at Monash, Andrew was selected as a delegate of the Monash
University Global Discovery Program
and travelled to New York to initiate conversation with global leaders
to discover new ways of thinking and communicating.
Andrew learned how to expand his professional networks with an
innovative mindset to enrich his capacity for creative thinking and
Completing his degree studies the day before ASPIRE, Andrew will continue
working with Arena Theatre Company; Monash
University’s Centre for Theatre and Performance; and Vision
collaborates to create theatre that explores personal perceptions and
experiences; and that delves deep into what it means to feel truly heard
and seen and have one’s individual journey acknowledged through identity
and a sense of belonging. Such goals resonate with QACI’s aspirations
as an inclusive and nurturing learning community.
one so young, Andrew has developed his capacity to accept challenge and
embrace opportunity. He embodies the qualities of an IB Learner and is
eager and able to help create a better and more peaceful world. Andrew
credits risk-taking and moving on from what feels comfortable as
catalysts to personal and professional growth. We
congratulate Andrew and extend best wishes for his future which includes
discovering new opportunities in New York during 2019.
