Hey everyone! I'm Simar Bedi, your DUSA President and Student Member of the University Council for 2024.
Hailing from India, I'm an international student currently pursuing my master's in Business Analytics at Deakin's Burwood Campus. Since setting foot on Deakin grounds, I've been a passionate advocate for our vibrant student community.
In the post-pandemic year of 2022, I took the initiative to establish the Indian Club at the Burwood campus with my team of legends. Together, we organized a wide array of events, both on and off-campus, catering to both domestic and international Indian students.
In my role as Vice President Welfare in the last year, I have made sure DUSA hosted plenty of free food events across all campuses. Advocacy has remained my top priority, and I started the Welfare committee, which included representatives and council members across all campuses, and it has been very successful in bringing up student concerns and key issues, providing recommendations and solutions.
From actively participating in on-campus activities to organising various events, my fantastic team and I have worked tirelessly to foster connections among students, creating a friendly and welcoming atmosphere both on and off-campus.
Looking ahead to the next year, my goal is crystal clear: ensuring student voices are heard, their concerns are taken seriously, and addressed appropriately.
Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or ideas. Together, let's shape a more connected and engaged student community.
