"I’ve learnt to believe in myself and that I am capable of anything I put my mind to"
Elizabeth Mowat had plans to become a chef and was three units away from completing her Commercial Cookery studies when her life changed. Unable to continue that line of study any further, she developed a love of real estate and decided to pursue that instead. Having studied cookery at Box Hill, it was the logical place for her to study real estate. “I really liked Box Hill because it wasn’t too big,” she said.
Initially, Elizabeth was daunted by the “big and scary” size of the task ahead but she said, “This breaks down to each individual course. The Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate) was easier than I expected. My diplomas were a little more difficult at first but once I got down to it, it was really great.”
Following her Certificate IV, Elizabeth went on to complete a Diploma of Property Management (Agency Management) and then a Diploma of Leadership and Management at Box Hill Institute. She is currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Property and Real Estate at Deakin University.
