From Ice Cream Dreams to Medical Aspirations: Meet CU Alumnus Radman

We had the pleasure of sitting down with CU alumni Radman to reflect on his childhood aspirations, his Children’s University experience and his exciting plans for the future.

When Radman was eight he dreamed of becoming an ice cream salesman, “because I thought it offered heaps of ice cream”, but over time that changed to a career where he felt like he could help people in the medical field.

From a Passport to Learning student in the early days in Primary School when CU was introduced to the time spent as a Passport to Volunteering student in High School, Radman’s experience in the program was vast and well enjoyed. “I started in Primary School when it was first offered at my School” he shared. “I took up this opportunity as a way to get recognized for my piano classes and as a motivator to do more fun things and explore new opportunities.” Radman recalled a trip to Adelaide Zoo with his family as one of this favourite CU experiences. Other fond memories included completing booklets, participating in mentoring activities and assisting in the Special Education Campus.

Graduation was well recalled, saying “I thought it was going to be a smaller venue, but it turned out to be a giant hall.” Radman graduated multiple times, and even hosted the celebration as one of our student Master of Ceremonies.

Radman is currently studying a Bachelor of Medical Sciences at the University of Adelaide, but has aspirations to transfer into the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery and pursue a career as Doctor.  Thank you Radman, we wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
