Well, yes there is a Doctor in the house but he's not that kind of Doctor. Our son Andrew graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy last Thursday. Andrew Cameron Sims was one of six at the graduation ceremony that had the opportunity to wear the silly hat - we are very proud.
His thesis was entitled, "The Very Idea of Psychodynamic Neuroscience". Hey, don't ask me! I have no idea what this is all about but those at the VIP drinks and nibbles seemed most impressed with Andrew's achievements (as we are). His dedication and work ethic has awarded him with an outstanding achievement.
Andrew's life will be as an academic and probably in a country outside of Australia. Opportunities for such minds in Australia are very limited and so he hopes to settle in Europe before the end of this year - most likely in the Netherlands.
|Let me be the first to say that Andrew's academic talents come from his mother.|
It was a double celebration for us a parents as our other son, Mitchell starts his career in the travel industry after two weeks of training with STA Travel. Both our boys are much travelled and we expect that Mitch has found a career that gives him fulfilment.
