Hey there! I’m Eliza, born and raised in the Philippines. I’m a PhD Candidate in Environmental Engineering - and yes, I make some time for extracurricular activities! I am keen to help students feel and know that their voices are being heard by the university and that they can fully utilize the services available to enhance their student life and future employability.

Hi! My name is Eugene Dragut and I’m a Brissie local. I’m currently studying a Doctor of Medicine at UQ, but you’ll probably spot me napping on the great court more than any hospital. Always excited to meet new students and I’m super passionate about encouraging people to get involved in programs to boost their employability. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime!

Hi! My name is Melanie Harper, and I am from Brisbane. I have also spent a couple of amazing years in a small town in outback Queensland, an experience that has definitely contributed to my love for sport. I am currently in my third year of studying a dual Bachelor of Arts/ Bachelor of Education (secondary), majoring in ancient history/ history and criminology. I am passionate about helping and encouraging other students to connect and engage with various aspects of life at UQ, particularly the different events hosted by the various schools, faculties, clubs, and societies within the uni. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

Hi! My name is Erin Thomas and I’m in my 4th year at UQ studying a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy. I’m really interested in working in the field of mental health once I graduate. I’m a fierce advocate for students and I believe that student-staff partnerships are an amazing opportunity for students who want to share their voice too.
