Hello everyone. You can call me Ke Xiou. I am from Malaysia. Year 2020 is my first year in Melbourne and I am currently pursuing a Master of Social Work. I studied Psychology in my undergraduate, obtained a Professional Diploma in Arbitration and had a couple of years of work experience in the corporate world, particularly on branding and marketing, business consulting and people management.  

It has been quite a year. I believe the word for this year is “vulnerability”. SELF-CARE TIME: If I may just quickly share a link here. Take the time to watch this. For some of us who have watched before, this could be an opportunity to watch it again. 

We need to honour the fact that we can’t have an excellent student body without it being diverse. MGA is a body built for the graduate students, by the graduate students. Diversity leads to informed conversations and perspectives about wellbeing in the community. As the Women’s Officer of MGA, it is my privilege to be in a position to contribute to the women graduate community at Monash University. It is my intention to connect to women graduate students from different cultural backgrounds and different faculties and departments. I would love to have you as part of the MGA women’s community. 

It is important for me to get to know you (yes, you!). Drop me an email to say hi!

Personal Interests

Currently, taking a walk in my neighbourhood while podcasting is my greatest leisure time. I am a foodie. Eating nice food always makes me happy.
