Aoife shows she's a good sport - by packing in her law degree
MISS Universe Ireland Aoife Hannon has dropped out of her law degree to pursue a career in sports science.
The pageant queen has decided to quit her course in the University of Limerick in order to change her career.
Starting in September, Kerry native Aoife will head back to Limerick for a new course.
Speaking to the Diary, Aoife (20) admitted she realised in the last few months that she was on the wrong career path.
"I've decided to leave my law degree and go into sports science. I took a year out of college when I won Miss Universe Ireland and over the last few months I've realised that I really hated law. I really want to do sports science now and I've applied to get the course changed already. I'll be starting the new course in September, I'm looking forward to going back again," she explained.
And the leggy model says taking the course may lead to a big move to Australia. Aoife says she is happy to relocate if there is work down under.
"A lot of work for my course is in Australia. When I'm qualified I will be able to work with sports teams, I want to qualify as a sports nutritionist and there isn't much work for that here. If there is still work in Australia when I finish my degree then I would definitely move. It's what I really want to do," she admitted.
Although she is certain about her education Aoife now says she isn't too sure what the future will hold in her modelling career, saying things will change when she starts back at college.
"I don't know if I will keep on modelling, I will be back in Limerick full time.
"But I have done some work for Celia Holman Lee, anytime I'm around she always calls me and asks me to do shows so I think I will do some more work with her," she explained.
