- About Deakin
Welcome to the Deakin University - E-election web-site.
I have a Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Arts (International Studies) and am undertaking Honours in International Relations. I was a PASS Student Leader during 2012 and was awarded a 2012 Deakin University Global Citizenship Award. I currently hold secretarial positions with two politically affiliated groups. I have been a representative of Deakin University students at the previous two Open Days and have had experience in making important decisions during my employment at my local Member of Parliament's office. I believe I possess the relevant skills to effectively represent fellow students on the Faculty Board (Arts and Education).
A Deakin student since 2010, I have been a student representative at DUSA since 2011 and hold the position of Welfare Officer for 2012. I have represented student interests on both the Arts and Education Faculty Board and Academic Progress and Disciplinary Committees in 2012, working to make sure students' voices are heard and their problems dealt with fairly. I have work experience outside university with Centrelink and in the banking sector - which I believe helps me better understand the needs of all students.
I have a good deal of experience dealing with the university on a board level and hope I can represent Arts and Ed. students again in 2013.
