UWA student Farhan from Singapore

I'm the president of the student council. We're basically advocates for the students. We organise events for them to have fun. We spend time getting to know people and interacting, so they can have fun with their friends. We have a variety of events. We have sports activities – sometimes we will have badminton, football, or whole sports days. We'll also have fun events like escape rooms.
