How long have you worked at UOW?

Since November 2017 – almost 2.5 years (but I was an international undergraduate student at UOW in 2015)


What’s your/your team’s role at the university?

 I am an International Officer at the Faculty of business to support onshore international recruitment and further develop strong business relationships between the Faculty and its key partners with a primary focus on the China market.


What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

 The most rewarding part of my job is to be able to share my own experiences, journey and knowledge with students, and to provide them with professional and personalized suggestion which aligns their career aspirations and goals.


What’s the most challenging?

 Recruiting an international student is a very complex process and the market trending is forever changing. But in this dynamic marketing environment, it is a great learning process for me to learn from others, and also allows me to think out of the box, try out new methods, creative ideas, or experiences to cope with different challenges – particularly in this coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.


Proudest work achievement at UOW?

 My greatest successes at UOW are often found in helping students succeed.


What goals are you/your team working towards in 2020?

 We aim to ensure a high-quality, remotely-delivered learning experience, with good support in place for students. In the meanwhile, our goal is to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus today but form a dedicated action plan that will aid future recruitment long after the crisis has abated.


What’s your fondest memory so far of working at UOW?

 I am working under a family-like working environment, and honestly love to work with the best people ever in our team, and we put an emphasis on collaborative environments and teamwork.


Random fact about you or hidden talent?

I am a ballerina and a music lover


What’s your favourite place in the world and why?

 South Africa – I wish to start my volunteer tourism journey in Africa, and do some voluntary work with children (teach them dancing, singing, playing musical instruments etc.)


Something on your bucket list you’d care to share?

This was always going to be ballet-related. I’d love to travel all over the world and attend ballet masterclasses in different countries (particular UK and Russia)
