Nicola is a fourth year Journalism/Arts student majoring in history and international relations. Under her journalism studies she has taken a keen interest in both the value of overseas study and ways to enhance student communication. This is what led her to join one of UQ’s inaugural ‘Students as Partners’ programs in 2017 where she worked in a small team to create online content for the course COMU1120. Also, as a UQ abroad participant and previous peer mentor, Nicola hopes to draw upon these experiences to make HASS students feel as welcome as ever. She joined the HASS Student Futures Team in Semester 1 2018 as Communications Officer.
