Helena Trang

Analyst, Mandala Partners

Past intern and Student Advisory Committee Chair

Being a part of the McCusker Centre for Citizenship gave me an opportunity to meet likeminded people and organisations throughout my time at university. These experiences inspired me to pursue a career in for-purpose work in public policy.

Sophia Jacka

Graduate Consultant, Creating Communities

Past intern and Student Advisory Committee member

I completed an internship in a Community Engagement role through the McCusker Centre. Community engagement work wasn't something I knew much about at the time, now it's what I do every day. My involvement with the McCusker Centre ignited my passion for working with the community. I'm so grateful for this experience and the incredible McCusker Centre team for supporting me through this journey.
