The spotlight was on exceptional University of Southern Queensland students who go above and beyond in extra-curricular endeavours last night (October 12) at the 2022 UniSQ Student Awards.
Students were recognised for their excellence in the areas of sport, clubs and societies, leadership and community, as well as the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Engagement and All Rounder awards.
All Rounder Award Winner Hamida Nazari said the night provided an opportunity to reflect on just how life-changing education could be.
“Getting involved in the UniSQ student community has helped me find a sense of belonging with the student cohort,” Hamida said.
“I arrived in Australia having immigrated from Afghanistan in 2017, and begun studying a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws (International Relations) the following year.
“It’s so easy to make friends through the online forums, student clubs and there are so many social groups where you can meet new people.
“The culture here is so inclusive and supportive, and I encourage anyone thinking of studying no matter where you are in life to get involved at UniSQ.”
Hamida is the current undergraduate representative on the Strategic Advisory Board for the School of Humanities and Communication, and founder of the International Relations Student Association. She also is the Editor-in-Chief for the UniSQ Law Society’s Law Review.
