HEAR FROM OUR GLEP STUDENTS

2018 GLEP student Nicholas Morrison is a leader in the SPARK program, which provides assistance to children from refugee backgrounds who have recently arrived in Sydney. He also leads the Brekkie Van program, which aims to help improve the lives of homeless people in Sydney.

He is also a church youth group leader at St Johns Park Baptist Church and captain of the Sydney Flag football team.

“Being a leader is not just about being in a position of power or authority, but rather setting an example for others, being consistent and sincere and offering support.”

Nicholas Morrison – Bachelor of Business Leadership and Commerce

2018 GLEP student Emma Clare Cocking was elected as prefect on her high school’s Student Representative Council (SRC). During this time, she coordinated several philanthropic activities, including a fundraiser for Beyond Blue. She also served as a netball coach for Willoughby United Netball Club, and was awarded the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.

“I’ve learned that the most effective way to lead is to lead by example. If you display personal values of respect, empathy and compassion, others will be encouraged to also display these characteristics.”

Emma Clare Cocking  – Bachelor of Medical Sciences

2018 GLEP student Gayathri Aranhiyullathil Pradeep was elected as her school’s captain. During this time, she raised money for girl’s education charity One Girl, and led a team of students in the FIRST Robotics competition in 2016 and 2017, helping to break down the cultural, institutional and organisational factors that discourage girls from studying STEM.

She has also volunteered at charity fundraisers such as the International Women’s Day and for Mental Health Awareness programs.

“I have learned that I have the ability to create change, even when faced with obstacles. I’ve also developed some of the most important leadership skills and qualities, such as time management, a positive attitude, integrity, team work and having a growth mindset.”

Gayathri Aranhiyullathil Pradeep  – Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) with Bachelor of Commerce

2018 GLEP student Rose Cox has been the Young Ambassador of the Australia Kookaburra Kids Foundation since 2014. This role saw her deliver speeches to the Governor General of Australia and to former Prime Minister, Tony Abbott.

She has been a volunteer at the Exodus Foundation, Loaves and Fishes Restaurant in Ashfield for several years – receiving the Inner West Student Volunteer of 2016 award for this service – and sits on the NSW Carers Advisory Council.

“Leadership is not about me. I believe that leadership is about individuals working collaboratively in a team to achieve the best outcome for all.”

Rose Cox – Bachelor of Social Science

2018 GLEP student Abby Downes led a team of students in the FIRST Robotics competition over two seasons in 2016 and 2017, was school captain of Wee Waa High School, and was elected as the junior leader for her local junior youth group.

“Through participation in a variety of community activities, I’ve learned how important preparation and flexibility are, and that hard work and perseverance brings good results. I’ve also learned that it’s important to be gentle and considerate of other people’s feelings and situations at all times.”

Abby Downes – Bachelor of Science with Bachelor of Education (Secondary)

2018 GLEP student Evangeline Endacott served as a member of the 2017 Mid-Western Regional Youth Council, coordinating several events such as the Youth Employment Seminar.

She led the Mudgee High School Student Leadership Roll Call from 2015 to 2017, engaging her school and the local community in issues such as bullying, school pride, sport, global inequalities and sustainability.

She also initiated Plastic Free July and coached the under 16s Mudgee Wolves soccer team in 2017.

“I’m very interested in helping as many people as I can. I believe change can be achieved at a micro, meso and macro level by simply modelling the behaviour I wish to be reflected in society or by grasping every opportunity that is available to me.”

Evangeline Endacott  – Bachelor of Information Technology with Bachelor of Laws

Anne Spragg undertook GLEP in 2016. While volunteering in Papua New Guinea with the Summer Institute of Linguistics in New Britain, Anne developed personal relations with the local community, assisted school children in their knowledge of English, ran children’s activities, and delivered books in the indigenous language of Romaaoina.

While enrolled in the Bachelor of Speech, Hearing, and Language Sciences, Anne undertook an introductory French unit in order to develop her cross-cultural literacy skills.

She has also accompanied Wycliffe Bible Translators to Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory and South Australia, which allowed her to consider the languages and the language planning involved in these communities.

“My experiences at Macquarie have taught me the importance of learning about how other cultures communicate and the importance considering culture in communicating.”

Anne Spragg – Bachelor of Speech, Hearing and Language Sciences

Emily Bottero undertook GLEP in 2015. She has volunteered for the Red Cross Red Shield Appeal, participated in the Peer Support Leadership Program at Henry Kendall High School and coordinated the school’s Anzac Memorial Service. While at high school, she received the Principal’s Award for Great Year 10 Results, a Certificate of Academic Excellence and a Year Award for Outstanding Effort during her schooling years.

Since enrolling in the Bachelor of Advanced Science, Emily has undertaken a short course in Italy where she studied cross-cultural leadership, self-leadership, social justice and innovation. She has also participated in four GLP Colloquia (leadership, bioscience ethics, cross-cultural understanding and beyond borders) and attended a Distinguished Speaker Series.

“The GLP has taught me how opening our minds to new concepts of culture and the way we perceive and are perceived in other cultures is critical to better understanding the world around us and for implementing successful change.”

Emily Bottero – Bachelor of Advanced Science

Jacinta undertook GLEP in 2015. During this time she taught Karate to junior school children, volunteered in a local soup kitchen, coordinated multiple local community service projects, volunteered for the Toukley Torchbearers for Legacy, and led a small team for the ‘Luna Agenda’ Intelligence Analysis Scenario.

Now enrolled in Bachelor of Laws, Jacinta continues to demonstrate leadership skills and high levels of community engagement. She has presented her experience with the GLP to Year 12 GLEP students and taught English in a small village school in Cambodia.

“Through the GLP I’ve developed my understanding of cross-cultural backgrounds and how to best respect the different types of situations around the world that we see today.”

Jacintha Harmer – Bachelor of Laws

Mitchell undertook GLEP in 2015, demonstrating leadership and service skills in a range of activities outside of his schooling.

He has participated in the Australian Government Youth Advisory Council on Cybersafety, held multiple leadership positions with Scouts, and represented Scouts at international and national Events in the USA, New Zealand, Tasmania and South Australia. Additionally, he has received Duke of Edinburgh bronze and silver awards.

While enrolled in the Bachelor of Business Leadership and Commerce, Mitchell undertook a one-year exchange at Copenhagen Business School in Denmark and two courses at Universit├Ąt Autonoma de Barcelona in Spain. Both experiences allowed him to engage in issues of leadership, negotiation techniques, environmental policy and economics. He also led a team in the FIRST Robotics Competition at Macquarie University and was responsible for formulating the business plan that is presented and judged at the competition. He later joined Macquarie’s Vice-Chancellor in Ivanhoe, teaching robotics to school students.

“The GLP taught me how important effective communication is if we wish to combat the issues surrounding cross-cultural communication in order to realise goals and empower people.”
