About Me

Just About Elite://: The corner of the web you’re currently reading the About page of because you seem to be interested, or perhaps just curious, about what a university student has to say about her journey to the 2020 Olympics and everything that comes along with it (trust me, it’s a lot).

Hello there and welcome to Just About Elite. My name is Monique and I’m that university student. If I had to be honest, I’ve lost count on the number of times I have written this about page and then backspaced everything, grunted in frustration at my inability to string a couple of sentences together about what this blog is about, and tried  re-writing something that I initially thought was genius, but then just repeated the whole process all over again.

Anyway, focus Monique.

Just About Elite is a mixture of…well….everything. You’ll find a bunch of posts ranging from my Olympic journey to studying to politics to health to just about anything, if I had to be blatantly honest. So I guess it’s pretty much a lifestyle blog? I think? I dunno. I don’t want to go into too much detail about myself because we would be here forever and I have always seemed to have a knack of rambling on…something I should probably work on fixing.

But here’s a quick snapshot of me: I’m currently a university student studying Law and International Studies at Deakin University. I’m Melbourne born and bred and one of my (many) dreams is to travel the world (alright, that was kind of cliche). Anyway, when I finished high school, I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I had my career plan all sorted, what I was going to do, how I was going to get there.

Fast forward to uni, and I’ve realised life isn’t that simple (not that there was anything simple about what I was planning on doing). That’s where Just About Elite comes in. On here, I hope you find the inspiration and motivation or the skills and tips you need to believe in yourself and believe in your dreams. If anything, I hope you get a few moments to relax and just have a laugh (because I’m a dag like that who thinks I’m funny even though I’m probably not but anywho).

I’ll leave it at that for now. Thanks for dropping by.
