Emily Deng

Hello, I'm Emily. I'm a third-year Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery student at the uofa. As an AUU Board Director, I want to make meaningful changes to our campus that all students enjoy and are welcomed.

? What inspired you to engage with the office and role(s) you currently hold?

I would like to raise the voice of the students, especially international students and students studying health-related degrees.

?? What do you hope to achieve in your office and role(s) in 2022?

As an international student myself, I would like to help overseas students who are impacted by COVID-19 in terms of academic support and mental health. I would also like to facilitate the return of offshore students safely back to SA through the pilot program. Moreover, I would like to further promote club events and activities and simplify the application process of the funding.  

?? What is your number one tip for a new student?

Join different clubs and societies within your degree as well as outside! It’s always good to meet more people and make new friends as uni can be quite daunting if you are new in Adelaide.

Also, sign up for AUU membership! Free lunch fortnight, student discounts and much more!

?What is the biggest mistake you have made at Uni?

I signed up for AUU membership but forgot to get my free lunch for the whole semester!

?? What three words would your friends use to describe you?

Motivated, trustworthy, easygoing
