Challenger Engineering Student appointed CISA Ambassador
Born in Nigeria,
Challenger international student Samuel Onuoha has recently been acknowledged as a Council of International Students Australia (CISA) ambassador.
Samuel Onuoha was selected for this prestigious role because of his interest in and commitment to international student issues.
Samuel, who is also a Challenger international student mentor, believes that being a CISA ambassador is a huge opportunity to drive change in the education sector.
“One of the roles of a CISA ambassador is sitting on the CISA state working group,” Samuel said.
“Contributing to this group will enable me to represent international students in Western Australia and have our voice heard in regards to student matters.”
Samuel hopes to take what he learns as CISA ambassador back to campus to benefit Challenger international staff and students alike.
CISA is the national peak student representative organisation for international students studying in Australia.
Samuel is currently in his second year of studying Engineering and has found South Metropolitan TAFE's international support staff very helpful in providing
guidance. He also likes the way South Metropolitan TAFE's lecturers encourage the development of ideas and discussion to help all students learn.
