About our Student Ambassadors

RMIT Training Student Ambassadors are current, or recently graduated students, who volunteer with the Student Experience team to represent the student body, assist with event coordination, giving informal mentoring to fellow students, and share their experiences as an international student at RMIT Training.

Meet Jumanh

My name is Jumanh Alghamdi, I’m a Muslim and I’m from Saudi Arabia and I had previously studied 4 years in America. I’m a second semester student and I will be studying aerospace engineering. I’m very approachable and an extroverted person. I enjoy going to the gym. I’m good at math and science subjects let me know if you need help with foundation courses. I love how Melbourne’s weather is unpredictable.

Meet Abdul

Greetings everyone, I am Abdul Rahman Abdul Samad, hailing from Saudi Arabia. Presently, I am enrolled as a student at RMIT University, progressing through the language stage as I ready myself for embarking on a master's program in mass media. I possess a bachelor's degree in the same field, backed by over a decade of professional expertise. My inclination lies in fostering connections and contributing to the community's betterment, particularly among fellow students. I am enthusiastic about aiding transformations for the positive. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me should you have any inquiries. Warm regards.

Meet Ruth

Hello! I am Ruth from Nigeria and I have spent most of my life there as well. I am currently studying Foundation Studies in Health. I enjoy doing a lot of things in my free time like meeting new people, going for walks, watching movies, sleeping, and listening to music. I also derive pleasure from helping others, I am very friendly and easy-going. If you need any help with settling in or just need someone to chat with, it will be my uttermost pleasure to be of help!

Meet Alex

Hello, hello! My name’s Alejandra (but you can call me Ale), I am 19 and I have two last names: González and Saavedra. I moved with my family from México in 2022 because of my father’s job, with dreams of becoming an independent animator or storyboard artist. While I live in Melbourne, I want to try lots of new things and learn the fundamentals that will let me jump onto the animation stage after graduating from a bachelor in design for multimedia. When I am not working on school assignments, I’m a queer digital artist who draws an unhealthy amount of Sonic the Hedgehog fanart for online kudos. I can speak Spanish, English, and French fluently, as well as a bit of Japanese, so do not hesitate to speak to me in whichever language makes you most comfortable.

Meet Sa Sa

Hi, my name is Sasa and I am from Hong Kong. I am studying my second semester in Foundation Studies in the ADA stream. I enjoy activities such as photo/videography and video editing. I will be studying the Bachelor of Photography when I finish Foundation Studies. I speak English and Cantonese, so whenever you find it hard to adjust to Melbourne life, or just want someone to talk to, I am always available!

Meet Hezha

Hello everyone! I am Hezha from Iran and I love making new friends, so feel free to send me message anytime you want. I am studying Engineering after my Foundation studies but besides that I love tech, cars, and photography! We are here to make everything easier and smoother, both uni stuff and living things! So, if you have difficulty with anything count on me! Do you see that blue “contact Hezha” button down there👇??? It is not fake! It is real! Try it and send me an Email!

Meet Vaibhavi

Hello! I am Vaibhavi Thakkar. I am from India. I am studying Foundation in Health. I love coffee and enjoy posting on Instagram. I want to become Nurse in Melbourne and help people a lot. I have noticed that, in Melbourne coffee culture is so different from my home country.

Meet Eddie

Hello there! I'm Eddie, and I'm excited to dive into the world of health science, specifically chiropractic, in the near future. I'm quite a language enthusiast, being fluent in three languages: Chinese, English, and Spanish. If you're curious about the unique blend of Chinese accents in Spanish, feel free to strike up a conversation with me. I have a genuine passion for connecting with new individuals and unraveling their stories; there's something truly magical about the tales people carry with them. While I might lean towards being more of an indoors person, don't be surprised to find me embracing the great outdoors through activities like snowboarding, hiking, and even scuba diving. I'm an open book, so feel free to ask me anything you're curious about. Let's forge a friendship and share our experiences!

Frequently Asked Questions

Your Ambassadorship will last for one semester. This may be February - June or July - December. If you want to continue for more than one semester you’re most welcome to apply again.

If you are now at RMIT University you are welcome to apply. Having alumni on our team of Ambassadors is a great addition to the program.

We generally recruit around 6-10 Ambassadors each semester.

Ambassadors help plan, organise and delivery activities and events for all students at RMIT Training. For example, you might help us plan a calendar of activities for a month, cook sausages on a BBQ, or help plan a student party.

They also help bridge the gap between the Student Experience team and the greater student body by promoting activities to students. This might be on social media or through informal chats in class.

You will learn new skills, for example, video editing, make new friends (Ambassadors often find their besties in the program), become more confident and a better leader, get the feel-good vibes that come with volunteering, and above all, you’ll have fun! You’ll also get free or discounted entry to activities and some free merch!
