Australian Defence Force Academy

Officer Cadet Ariadne Colaco

Officer Cadet First Laste

I chose ADFA because I knew that I didn’t want a regular university experience. I wanted to be challenged and pushed out of my comfort zone, and ADFA is the perfect place for that. I’ve extended beyond what I ever thought I would, both mentally and physically, and I absolutely love it.

Once upon a time, I was a very quiet and shy person who was scared of a lot of things because I didn’t believe in myself. In coming here, I’ve overcome so many things and challenges as a person and it’s a great place to grow and to try new things.

ADFA is a place for everyone and it’s got its perks for everybody; you can grow and find your niche and fit.
