Arwen Keith is currently studying a Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Laws (Honours) at the University of Queensland as they believe it’s imperative to have leaders who are fluent in both the legal and scientific frameworks.

Arwen has enjoyed all aspects of university life, and a particularly rewarding experience was being selected as the Convenor for Male Rowers at Union College - which saw them manage the training and race schedules for five different crews and become an accredited coach. They were also fortunate enough to work with various crews, from school age to masters, as a coxswain. Additionally, Arwen has participated in the UQ Law Society’s Mooting and Negotiations competitions, volunteered as Assistant Stage Manager for the UQ Law Revue, performed in the Union College One Act Play, and completed the UQ Ventures Validate Program for Entrepreneurship. This year, alongside their current extra-curricular and sporting commitments, Arwen is excited to write for the UQ Law Society’s comedy satire magazine, The Obiter, and begin work as an assistant at a mediation firm.

Arwen graduated as the Dux and Valedictorian of Stanthorpe State High School, achieving subject awards for all six subjects – including a Certificate of Excellence in Physics from the Australian Institute of Physics and top of the state for English & Literature Extension. As a result, Arwen received a UQ Excellence Scholarship and the UQ Young Achievers Program Scholarship.
