Nivya Abraham

Hi everyone, my name is Nivya Abraham. I am studying Bachelor of Social Work & I am the Academic Senate Student Representative on the University of Newcastle Students' Associaion (UNSA) Student Representative Council (SRC).

I am very grateful to have this position and I would like to make sure that the voice of students is heard when it comes to academics and their wellbeing. I will be seen ususally at Callaghan campus as I study Social Work. I am quite interested in fitness as well and so you might also find me in the gym of an evening. I realise that my responsibility is to advise and recommend UNSA Board matters of education and experience of students. I assure that I will try my best to put forward the opinions of everyone and try to accomplish my responsibilities.
