My name is Ella O'Brien, and I am the Engagement Officer for the QUT Student Guild!
I am currently studying a dual Law and Creative Industries degree, majoring in Entertainment (so I know both campuses really well!).
This year is my fifth year at QUT and I wanted to continue my work at the Guild so that I can make more of a positive impactful difference to the student experience whilst at university.
The Engagement Portfolio is new this year and focuses largely on getting students involved in university and extra-curriculars! I work closely with the Clubs and Sports team to help generate a thriving community on campus, as well as with our Events and Marketing team to help create fun events for students to enjoy!
The more serious part of my job is looking out for students needs and filling the gaps within the Guild to ensure that every student's voice is heard. I sit on a range of committees and hope to make a positive difference in the life of every student from all faculties. I encourage you to send me an email if you see anything that doesn't sit well with you or if you have any ideas to improve student engagement at QUT. You can contact me at email@example.com.
I can't wait to see you around!
