My Story!

Yoga at the Celebrating Success Awards The role gave me the opportunity to really make an impact!

"Being a Community Rep has given me the opportunity to really make an impact by working with the City Council and local residents to ensure the student voice is heard in your community. My journey as a Community Representative has been a memorable one! It is where I met and connected with like-minded people from diverse backgrounds. It has given me a sense of satisfaction to help and give something back to the community.

I have gained exposure and communication skills from the many opportunities offered in the programme – to serve the society outside campus and network in events organized by the university and City Council. It has shaped me to be a more proactive student and a well-rounded individual. The qualities and skills I have acquired from my experience as a Community Representative are invaluable and will always be a part of me, towards my career path. Having this great experience mentioned in my CV made me a more employable candidate. There's also always plenty of support and further opportunities available along the way. Hence, I urge existing students out there to seize this fulfilling opportunity and feel the impact!"
