“Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well.” Philip Stanhope
I am a very passionate person who lives by this quote and believes in leading by example. As a member of my generation, it is my responsibility to become active in changing the world for the better. As an international student, I continue to abide by this philosophy and strive to be involved in my community both locally and globally.
Hello, my name is Chiamaka Ibeme and I am studying the Master of Information Technology at CQUniversity Melbourne campus, with the ambition to become a software architect. I am also a Change Champion where I promote and contribute to social innovation, which I am very passionate about.
Hello, my name is Aesha and I come from India. My study journey started from getting a visa grant to landing in the liveliest city in the world: Melbourne.
Being an international student in Australia has been — and will continue to be — a lifelong learning experience. It has not only brought opportunities for me to extend beyond my horizons and enhance my qualification but I have also made some good friends.
Every moment I am here is a lesson in itself because it has made me stronger, confident about my instincts, beliefs and self-esteem level.
Hello, my name is Krishna Sen, I am from a small town in Nepal called Chitwan and am currently studying a Master of Human Resource Management at CQUni Sydney campus.
I left home at the age of 15 for Pune, India after schooling for my higher study. I graduated from one of the renowned universities of India, Savitribai Phule Pune University and it was tough for me to decide what to do next. I wanted to do a masters degree but was confused from where.
Then I thought of Australia — one of the most popular destinations for international student and not once have I ever regretted my decision.
Hello, my name is Prince. After the completion of my undergraduate study in my home country, Nepal, I decided to move to Australia to pursue postgraduate study in civil engineering.
I chose Melbourne as my study destination as it was recognised as the world’s most liveable city with a high standard quality of living and vibrant multicultural society that is safe for international students.
Well, 2018 was an incredibly busy year for us in the Change Champion team! Across five regions we delivered events, activities and workshops for students and staff with the aim of engaging and inspiring people to get involved in Social Innovation.
The Office of Social Innovation has empowered us as Change Champs to be leaders on our local campus, and we are super excited to enable more people to kick-start their changemaker journey in 2019! We are looking for like-minded students to join us, so if you’re interested in creating a better world, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Take a look back at what 2018 looked like for the Change Champion team and our fellow students!
Volunteering is defined as ‘time is willingly given for the common good and without financial gain’ (Volunteering Australia, 2015). You as a student might be wondering what benefits there are in volunteering. Well, you are at a right place to get an answer to that question!
For students, there are so many benefits as a volunteer.
