5th Year Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical) and Bachelor of Arts (French/History) at UNSW. The Deputy Dean supports the role of the Dean of the College whilst also fulfilling the role of a Resident Fellow. Living out-of-home, particularly if you are coming from overseas, is a unique and challenging experience for students. It is part of our role here as the staff of Fig Tree Hall to help everyone settle into their new environment.
This is my sixth year at UNSW completing a dual degree program in Chemical Engineering and Arts (French and History). I grew up in Sydney so know the city like the back of my hand! It is a beautiful city to explore and experience for our visiting students, both local and international. I love sharing my intimate knowledge of Australia's culture and landscape with our residents and making sure they know the best places to visit in their mid-year break! I have an extensive background working with UNSW's largest student societies and facilitating the events and activities they run throughout the year which is what initially drew me into the Colleges. I work closely with our House Committee to make sure we are delivering the best community-building and fun activities to our residents.
Fig Tree Hall is my home as well and it always gives me great pleasure to welcome students from all over Australia and the world through our doors. We are a young community but a thriving one here and are continually working hard to build our respectful and diverse culture. I hope we get the chance to meet soon!
