Ruchir Raman - Science Student Ambassador
Looking back, my time as a Student Ambassador has been an extremely integral part of my growth and development in the areas of teamwork, leadership and interpersonal skills, and in gaining a lot of self belief and a sense of belonging to the university community. I had a fantastic experience volunteering in university events with the Faculty of Science team.
