Simeon Gover

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Master of Engineering
Andrew N. Liveris Academy Scholar, 2019

Simeon is currently enrolled for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Master of Engineering at UQ, planning to major in either chemical or civil engineering.

In 2019 he graduated from St Paul's School as Dux and was selected to return to the National Mathematics Summer School on the years completion as one of 11 returning students. Throughout year 12 Simeon was also committed to his role as School Captain, which he says taught him invaluable lessons and skills which still shape much of his understanding of leadership today. Throughout his senior studies he was selected into two international programs, both hosted in Japan, with the first targeting an inspiring young leader from each delegate country, and the second for three students with keen passions for international-relations and issues surrounding global sustainability. These programs have fostered Simeon's interests in broadening his multi-cultural perspective and trying to find solutions to the world's major sustainability problems, specifically to find more sustainable practices on large scale consumerism.

Outside of this Simeon also dabbles in music, sport and debating, although he must admit that his debut in seconds basketball in year 12 was mediocre at best.

Simeon is very honoured to be selected into the Liveris Academy and cannot wait to make the most out of his time as a Scholar and a university student in general.
