Feeling like her previous qualifications were too broad, Natasha enrolled in a youth work degree so she could study children’s rights and youth empowerment.
Assistant to the National Program Coordinator at the Australian Youth Climate Coalition.
After graduating from her associate degree in science, art and humanities in Los Angeles, Natasha felt as though her major was too broad. She knew she was interested in children’s rights and youth empowerment, so decided to enrol in RMIT’s Bachelor of Social Science (Youth Work).
"I remember being really impressed when I read about RMIT’s youth work program. The courses, work experience opportunities and prospect of studying in the heart of Melbourne really excited me.
"A highlight for me was going on placement in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Here, I worked at a highly involved youth organisation where I was able to attend important meetings at the Senate, write final reports and apply for funding. It was so rewarding to see the outcomes of my efforts when we received funding from two major organisations and the European Union during my stay.
"At the moment, I am working at the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) assisting the National Program Coordinator. This opportunity arose from one of my work placements with RMIT. A year on, I am still working with them on major projects!"
