Graduating from a Bachelor of Arts in Politics and Government (majoring in Politics and Public Policy) and Commerce with Honours, Councillor Shayne Sutton never thought she would end up working in politics and going to the ballot box for Morningside Ward in 2004. After graduation, Councillor Sutton was originally aiming for a life in the public service writing policy but instead became the youngest woman ever to be elected to the Brisbane City Council. See how her degree helped her to the position she holds today.
