Yie Xin Cheong (Illuminate)
Hello! My name is Yie Xin Cheong, I am a first year Law and Taxation student. I will be a Guild Councillor and NUS Delegate in 2022.
I understand every Curtin University student has expectations from their Guild.
We will work towards:
1 – The establishment of timely assessment feedback to maximise our chance of succeeding.
2 – The restoration of face-to-face lectures and tuition-free weeks.
3 – The offer of affordable services on campus, namely food and parking.
At Curtin, I am a Student Ambassador, a Student as Partner, and a Representative of Faculty of Business & Law Student Consultative Committee. Prior to joining Curtin, I was a finalist of the 2020 Zonta Young Women in Public Affairs Award and a Youth Advocate for the City of Stirling. During my three years at Churchlands Senior High School, I have accumulated a total of 655 community service hours. As a recent migrant from Southeast Asia – Malaysia, from the bottom of my heart, I am thankful for all the opportunities given to me.
Now, I wish to and plan to continue the momentum of giving back to society, which starts at Curtin University. With my migrant background, I understand the difficulties faced by international students as well as interstate students either academically or financially. In addition, my knowledge, experiences, and achievements have equipped myself with the qualifications.
I have confidence in my abilities to meet and exceed the expectations for both Guild Councillor and NUS Delegate positions.
