City East – January Activity Report – Julie Ma

Hello everyone!

My name is Julie and I’ve been elected to be your City East Representative for 2019. It’s my first time on the board so I’m excited to have this opportunity to be your voice and do my best to implement new initiatives around campus.

This month, I’ve been privileged to be able to spend the 22nd and 23rd of January at a Board Retreat with the other student reps as well as the USASA staff. This was an invaluable experience to learn about USASA’s operations, our roles and expectations. We also spent a lot of time team-building and challenged our critical thinking and values. These skills we developed were fundamental to create collaborative goals and outline our vision for what we wanted to achieve for the year. It consisted of lots of brainstorming on paper and I look forward to see the translation of these plans in action!

I’d also like to take this opportunity to emphasise the advocacy service here at USASA – a team of experts in academic policies and reviews. If at any time you are dealing with academic issues e.g. seeking to appeal against final grades, academic conduct, preclusion etc., the advocacy service is here to support you. You can find more information here:

On a final note, I will be sharing my role as a City East representative with Sopor Tan. Sopor and I will be working closely to ensure that we can create a great year for the students at City East!  

So, if you see me around campus – feel free to say hello! I’d love to hear from you. Alternatively, I can be contacted on

P/S: We’ve got some exciting planned activities coming up next month:

  • February 7th: Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Day
  • February 25th – 29th: Orientation week
