ANY hypothesis would suggest Talia Rose has a bright future.

The South Grafton High School student told The Daily Examiner she was thrilled to discover she had successfully applied to participate in a six-day science conference to be held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in August.

Talia was invited to apply by the Australian Science Innovations after achieving a high distinction in a school science competition.

It was an invitation the star teenager couldn't knock back.

"It was a privilege to be invited to apply, let alone be selected. It is an honour to have the chance to represent Australia and my school at an international level," the 18-year-old said.

The science conference will unite 200 high school and university students from 24 countries in numerous "round-table discussions and scientific lectures hosted by Nobel laureates.

"I'm looking forward to absorbing all the information I can from the professors and world-renowned scientists," Talia said.

"I'm also looking forward to meeting a network of like-minded people at an international capacity. I'm so excited about it.

"I really enjoyed junior science classes at school and I'm studying biology, physics and chemistry units for my upcoming HSC."

Talia says she is interested in how science impacts on society, citing transportation and electrical distributions as examples.

When she completes high school, Talia said she would like a career in science and engineering.

"I'm really excited about all these things I'd like to do. As soon as I come back home I'll start my HSC exams," she said.

"All my friends and family are excited for me."
