This is Prashansa, a masters student based at Clayton campus and a general representative in the MGAEC 2023-24. I belong to the faculty of information technology. I am someone who believes in kindness and empathy. In a world where we can be anything, I would choose to be kind and humane because everyone deserves the same treatment as he should be treated. I would want to work on this equity, unity and kindness across students of different cultural backgrounds and different countries.

I applied to become a student representative with the Monash Graduate Association because I wanted to bring some difference in our University. I want to emphasise some endangered values such as politeness, kindness and empathy and develop a community that isn’t just contributing to the economy and to research but to create a community that cares, values kindness and treats others with respect. I think this will make a huge impact in the upcoming years and humanity can be one of the rarest traits of a human.

Personal Interests

I am a very extroverted, friendly person and love to try new things. I am also a really hard worker, who perseveres until the task in accomplished and I promise to pursue the issues of graduate students till time allows.

Work for the MGA

The MGA employs Monash graduate students to fill the receptionist roles at the Clayton and Caulfield offices. When a vacancy arises we advertise the position through our email newsletter and on our website.

The Monash Graduate Association (MGA) is the representative body for all graduate research and coursework students enrolled at Monash University. So, what sets us apart from the University services? The MGA is an independent, not-for-profit association governed by graduate students, for graduate students. Our primary aim is to be there for you! If you can’t find what you are looking for, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
