What I love about WSMS:
I love that WSMS is something run entirely by volunteers with the aim of improving everybody’s experience of studying medicine at Western Sydney U. It combines all the elements of student life whilst educating, advocating for, and looking out for the students. It’s also the reason I didn’t starve in my first year of medicine.

Goal for 2016:
To make the academic program even stronger, to provide readily accessible support for students with regards to all academic matters, and to facilitate clear and open communication with the School of Medicine.

Interesting fact:
I’ve had different coloured eyes for 10 years and am regularly asked if I’ve noticed it. Yes, I have noticed it.
