I do! It's called Mallu. It’s an ethical alternative to mainstream fashion. We’ve been at it for a year and it’s been amazing. We’ve been to India, we did the UCE Summer Start-up, we entered the entré 85K Challenge and won the sustainability and social enterprise award.
Yes, I work alongside the CEO and deal with all of the operations. It's pretty intense but it's such an incredible opportunity. I'm learning how to manage people, and that's exactly what I want to do in the future.
I'm also treasurer of MuSoc, the musical theatre society on campus. I was given lot of trust in taking on that role. When I started, the club was in a bad financial state but now we're ahead and in a good position to purchase assets and improve the quality of our shows. The other great thing about MuSoc is all the people I've met. It's an amazing culture that a lot of people don't realise is here.
Yes. I think it's important that women are equally represented as leaders. Everyone who’s interested in leadership deserves the recognition and support to get there. There are a lot of women who are already leaders but perhaps don't realise it.
"I think it's important that women are equally represented as leaders."
Time management! Combining business and study means I have to make sure I have time for everything. It’s also given me a really open mind. I've had to learn how to take feedback constructively, even if it's not given that way.
Standing up for myself and knowing that I can do it. I'm really proud of how far I've come.
I definitely want to work with people in a social good organisation. I'd love to be an HR manager for an NGO. UC is setting me on that path. There is such a strong social scene and the classes are really collaborative. We work with real-life examples and have to solve real-life problems. It’s so relevant and I really enjoy that.
