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

The primary purpose of the students for coming to university is to get a quality education. I have seen, many students facing a lot of difficulties during the course of their studies. I want to be the impregnable voice of all our students so that their voices get heard in all the forums.

Favorite Holiday destination/activity:

I would love to go back for skiing. :) 

Favorite place to study:

Level 1, Library is my favorite place :) 

What do you hope to achieve from your role:

I want to be an impeccable bridge between the students and the university officials. I will represent the student's voices and raise their questions/concerns at every forum. I will bring gradual and constructive changes to the existing curriculum so that it not only benefits our current students but future ones as well. 

 Advice to new students: 

Many international students, including myself when I was supposed to arrive, come with a lot of questions in their minds and a fear of adjusting to a new culture. Though I accept that some students experience culture shock when they arrive, but the people here are very welcoming and understanding. The multi-cultural environment of Australia makes it very easy for a student with any religion or beliefs to blend into its culture in no time. A person can get all types of food in the market. The University will never hesitate to go the extra mile to help them feel comfortable in the new country. So my advice to the students would be to come without any fear and reach out to the universities in case of any problem or questions.
