Using her experiences for good
Felicia’s journey and her involvement in RUSU were instrumental in her role as a SNAP (Schools Network Access Program) Champion through RMIT’s Diversity and Inclusion programs, where she provided mentoring and guidance to high school students looking to attend university.
“My university experiences have made me really passionate about working as a SNAP Champion as I get to share all that I’ve learnt through navigating tertiary education with younger students who were like me and had no idea what university life could even be like,” she said.
Melissa Keean, the Equity Outreach Program Advisor, spoke to Felicia’s passion when it came to supporting her peers.
“Felicia exceled in this role and stepped up above and beyond on program delivery days to build positive rapport with the visiting students and teachers and provide them with an excellent experience of a university immersion day”
“She is an outstanding student, employee and peer mentor and is a fantastic ambassador for the university,” Melissa said.
What’s next for Felicia?
Following a cadetship at the Doxa Youth Foundation, Felicia has successfully landed a graduate position as a Change Management Consultant at KPMG.
Although she is nervous about making a big leap into the corporate world, Felicia is so excited to get more experience and continue her amazing journey.
Reflecting on her time at RMIT, Felicia shared some insights that encourage us to be open to all the opportunities that may come by.
“Even if I wasn’t confident in myself, it was only through being open to new experiences and pushing myself out of my comfort zone that I have met all the wonderful people I know now that have supported me along my journey.”
“You never know who or what can lead to your next lifelong friendship, job, or discovery of new passions,” she said.
