Student Testimonials

Caylie Panuccio

Current Bachelor of Arts (Languages) student

When I first came to Monash, I struggled with lots of things – how to use a Metcard (being from Geelong), getting lost, essay writing, and even trying to find the cheapest coffee! I would have loved to have someone my age who could show me around and teach me all the things about the university they don’t tell you in Orientation Week.

I joined the Ambassador program because I wanted to share this sort of knowledge with first year students, people who might feel just as vulnerable and lost as I did. Being an Ambassador has not only enabled me to help out other students, I’ve also had the opportunity to take part in a Mental Health First Aid course, and make a lot of new friends in the program. I also feel that I am contributing to the University community, and I strongly recommend this program to anyone who wants to help make a difference.
