Beyond the arts, Aniela has also worked in the IT, taxation and local government sectors: collectively, these opportunities allowed Aniela to gain comprehensive knowledge of people and financial management, brand development, event management, project management and strategic planning, and a clear understanding and interest in the challenges faced by the start-up and entrepreneurial businesses.

Aniela completed a Masters of Business (Arts and Cultural Management) at the University of South Australia, and was awarded two Australia Day awards from the City of West Torrens for her contribution to mentoring young people.

We asked Aniela, if she had one piece of advice for alumni what would it be?

"Be authentic, but be prepared to accept feedback and change. The personality you bring to a team is as critical as talent and experience: without clarity about what your unique skills, personal drivers and passions are, you may find your career (and personal life) unsatisfying. Teams appreciate leaders who show personal interest, ask for help, don’t take themselves too seriously, and who openly make and acknowledge their mistakes, using them as fuel for development and growth."
