Sam Doyle has just moved to the nation's capital. But the young solicitor has not moved from Armidale to Canberra to launch a political career.
Not yet anyway.
Instead, the 24-year-old started work on Monday at a new firm in the Canberra suburb of Manuka as a graduate lawyer.
"Nothing's off the table, but for the moment I'm focusing on a legal career, getting into the law and seeing how that goes," Sam said.
"But never say never."
For the UNE law graduate it is the first time he has moved away from Armidale.
Growing up he attended Martins Gully Public School, then transferrred to The Armidale School in year 4.
Before starting his law degree at UNE, Sam spent a year working in the city, which is what lead to his time as president of Armidale's AM Rotary Club.
During his gap year, he had worked at a couple of local cafes, as well as delivering pizzas, when the opportunity to join the service organisation came along.
"I was working at Black Jack's and one of the Rotarians approached me from (the) Rotary Club, which I'm in now, and asked me to come along as a guest at one of their social dinners they held at the cafe," Sam said.
"I enjoyed it and I've been a Rotarian ever since."
Joining at age 19, he was the youngest member in the club, but it didn't stop him getting heavily involved, and last year he became the youngest Rotary president Armidale had seen.
"When I was back in school, I went through the National Youth Science Forum and I was sponsored by another Rotary Club in town, and so I got an introduction into what Rotary was like," he said.
"My grandfather was a Rotarian in Glen Innes, my uncle is a Rotarian so my family had a bit of a history with it and I thought why not give it a go."
Now in Canberra, Sam is still attending local meetings online.
"Once the coronavirus is over I will find a club (here). At the moment they're all online, same as what my club is doing, but as soon as it opens back up I'll find a new club to join."
So far, he described his time in Canberra as uncharacteristically warm.
"I was coming down with the expectation that I would be wearing woollies and scarves, but on Sunday I was able to go for a walk around the area and it was nice and almost shorts and t-shirt weather."
While he is settling in to his new home, Sam reflected on his hometown, which he said had plenty to offer.
"Armidale's a wonderful community that's got a lot of amazing people in it and I think we've got a lot of potential as a city to grow, if we play our cards right, and I think that there's a lot of great opportunities for a lot of young people to get a great education and to work.
"I'm very grateful for the time I've had in Armidale, and all the people that I've been able to work with and deal with," he said.
