Stress: ‘I got really burnt out last year … I was overwhelmed,’ she explained. ‘Every day I’d sit in the car park and just cry, and I’d struggle to get myself out of the car to get to work’

Her advice for new graduates was to ‘try out everything’ and ‘don’t be afraid to ask questions’, adding: ‘That’s how we learn. And never think you know everything; we are always learning.’

Irena’s career update comes after she found love with former Australian Survivor star Locky Gilbert on season eight of The Bachelor last year. 

Since falling in love, the couple have spent plenty of time travelling across Australia.
