Student Leadership at Grace .

Meet the 2023 Student Leadership Team .

Hometown: Bangalore, India
Degree: Bachelor of Science
Favourite thing about Grace: I absolutely love our chefs and kitchen staff. They’re so fun to talk to and never forgets to say hello every time we go to grab food. They even know all our names!
One piece of advice for future Gracies: I know moving into a new environment can be daunting, but it gets easier as you immerse yourself in the many opportunities here at Grace. Try your hand at all the activities on offer because where else can you do it this easily? Even if it’s something totally new, you should still have a go because that’s how you can make memories, strengthen friendships and experience something totally different. The community at Grace is the most inclusive, fun community I’ve been part of yet! This is probably one of the only times I would get to live with so many friends and it’s something to cherish.

Hometown: Rockhampton, Queensland
Technically, I was born in Gumi-si in South Korea, however, I’ve spent the last 9 years living in Rockhampton, so it feels right to call the Beef Capital my hometown. A Rocky person I am!
Degree: Bachelor of Arts / Laws
Favourite thing about Grace: The wholesome community it provides – this ranges from my very close neighbours and the friendly kitchen staff to the one and only Ruldolf Doggo.
One piece of advice for future Gracies: Brace yourself for a year like you’ve never had. Try everything and anything you encounter. It’ll be worth it; I promise.

Hometown: Smithton, Tasmania
Degree: Bachelor of Fine Arts, Film, Screen and New Media at QUT
Favourite thing about Grace: The people, everyone here is so nice and welcoming, they make every event worth going to and make life at uni fun.
One piece of advice for future Gracies: Get involved! There’s so much to get excited about; between all the sports, cultural and social things going on – it really rounds out your university life. And there’s so much support to make sure you’re achieving your best in your studies. If you’re on the fence, I’d 100% recommend it!

Hometown: Toowoomba, Queensland
Degree: Bachelor of International Hotel and Tourism Management
Favourite thing about Grace: The culture of the college. It truly is a supportive, uplifting and inclusive community. We always have supporters at college events, cheering on our Grace residents. Everyone is willing to get involved, even if it’s in a sport they’ve never played before. And everyone knows everyone, so there’s always a friendly face around Grace.
One piece of advice for future Gracies: Get involved in all college has to offer!!! Come down to sports and cultural trials, go support Grace at all the events, and go on those cheeky late night Macca’s runs. It’s a great way to make friends when you come to Grace.

Hometown: Rockhampton, Queensland
Degree: Bachelor of Business Management / Arts
Favourite thing about Grace: The inclusivity. There is so much to do throughout the year with all Gracies, and everyone has been so supportive.
One piece of advice for future Gracies: It’s okay to take the time to focus on your studies. It’s easy to get overwhelmed around assessment periods, so it’s good to lean on your friends for support.

Hometown: Townsville, Queensland
Degree: Bachelor of Science & Bachelor of Education (Secondary).
Favourite thing about Grace: The people. The friends I have made and the people that surround me are something I’ll cherish for a long time.
