A graduate of James Ruse Agricultural High School, Bright is currently studying a double Bachelors in Medicine and Surgery at Western Sydney University. He has a particularly strong background in the physical sciences, managing to achieve not only a stellar ATAR but also placing fourth in the state in Chemistry. He's also rather modest about other talents he has. Despite performing as the male lead in his school musical he claims that he 'can't sing'.
Bright's tips for HSC success? He says that it's impossible to do well without being in the right mindset: "Set aside time for friends and fun. The HSC is much easier when you are in a better state of mind". However, he also believes that students need to learn to push themselves when they feel overwhelmed in order to reap the rewards: "Never give up! When you persevere your study will pay off".
