Adele Burke

Speaker Coordinator

Adele is in her second year of Mechanical (Space) Engineering and Maths at the University of Sydney, and has dreamt of becoming an astronaut since year 4. She first became involved with the AYAA after attending Futures 2018 in Canberra, and later, joined the 2019 Committee as Speaker Coordinator. With co-curricular interests in debating, public speaking and classical and contemporary dance, Adele hopes to be the first person to perform a grand jeté in space, and in doing so, help make careers in the space engineering field more accessible to young female students.
