My name is Jonathan De La Pena but most people call me Jono. I am your Assistant General Secretary for 2022, and am in my fourth year studying a Bachelor of Arts/Law at both the Waurn Ponds and Waterfront campuses. Last year I was the Geelong Campus Coordinator, and the Geelong Events and Functions Representative the year prior.
I am excited to be part of DUSA as we go into 2022, which should, finger’s crossed, allow us to take the opportunity to promote student life and culture in person, something which we have all struggled with during the pandemic.
Prior to my time at Deakin I served as a member of the ADF and continue to do so. During my free time I enjoy playing games, reading books, and watching anime. I aim to promote student life and engagement, especially coming out of lockdown, and hope to show students the fun and worthwhile opportunities that can be had during your time at Deakin University.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to get in touch, and if you happen to see myself or any other member of the Student Council don’t be a stranger and say hi! I promise we don’t bite 😉
