Alex CarneyWhat do you do?
I study film and television at Deakin University. ­

Why do you do it?
Because I want to be able to have a career doing something I love and find challenging, rather than just going though the motions! ­

What do you love about the city you live in?
Melbourne. I love, love, love the coffee.

­Where did you go for your last holiday?
I just got back from a semester abroad in California, America! ­

What's your favourite item of clothing? Why?
Definitely my beanies. Because keeping your ears warm is underrated, and it acts as my hair straightener. ­

What was your favourite TV show when you were a kid?
'The Simpsons' by a country mile.

­If you could travel back in time for a day, where would you go?
To go see the dinosaurs of course.

­If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook for us?
The most delicious succulent, medium-rare steak, with mash and greek salad, that you have ever had. ­

What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
I started studying sport science, then randomly decided I would pick up film. I didn’t want to quit sport science so decided I would study both degrees. The amount of people that told me it wasn’t possible to study the two degrees con-currently was ridiculous. I endeavoured and proved them wrong. The lesson learnt was that people will always tell you no because it’s easy, therefore you should and must prove them wrong! ­

Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows...
I make an amazing vanilla slice. ­

Are you happy with your work/life balance?
No. I wish everyday was a party, and it will be when I win the $40,000 for my entry in SuperCheap Auto’s Bathurst Big Break competition. Coming back from the states with quite a debt, the work/life balance hasn’t been great! ­

How do you define success?
Winning $40,000. Doing something you love for a living. ­

What's your spirit animal?
A big turkey.
