My name is Jessica Selwood and I am from Perth, Western Australia.
In 2017 I completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Law and Society and Business Law while also working in retail. I began my Masters in Taxation Law the following year, before taking six months off to live and work at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Upon returning from America at the start of 2019, I was quickly admitted to hospital and soon faced the discovery of Stage 4 glioblastoma.
After joining canteen in August, I quickly joined Leadership at the start of 2020. Since being diagnosed, I have had to stop working and studying, and I lost a lot of purpose in my life. Canteen has given me a new purpose, and a way for me to control my cancer. I am also grateful that Canteen offers support to my siblings. I hope that as a Youth Ambassador, I can help others going through their own cancer experience.
