Voices of Kent St

We want to hear from you! Provide feedback on your studies, events you have participated in, or anything else related to your campus experience.

Share your thoughts with Rudhra at rudhra.nathan@laureate.edu.au 

 


"Being a member of the SRC is a privilege and an opportunity. It is one of the most significant experiences I have had as an international student at Torrens University.

I think it is a world-class education when you get the chance to engage with diverse populations and to provide these students a platform for asserting their voices on campus.

SRC is an excellent mechanism for mustering student input, representing my fellow students and seeing the impact and how things work.

It was my absolute honour to sit side by side with different TU Campus Directors across Sydney during the recent SRC Summit, learn and exchange ideas and make decisions with them. Working with a network of passionate leaders is fun and overwhelming. It enhances my leadership skills and accelerates my confidence!"

- Luz Devilleres, SRC, MBA/MPH student 

 


Spotlight: Toastmasters @ Torrens

"At Torrens University Australia we have an amazing club named Toastmasters@Torrens where students, staff, alumni and visitors can come to learn and mentor each other. Each club member takes pride to polish their personalities and build their confidence.

Honorable members and guests are provided with an opportunity to create a positive mindset as future leaders. Toastmasters aims to provide members and guests a safe and friendly environment to enhance leadership qualities such as speaking, note taking and personal development. Each existing and new member brings new perspectives to the club which is the core value of Toastmasters At Torrens

We, the Executive Officers and members, encourage you to visit your own university club at Torrens University!"

Nayyer Mahmood Shah, President of Toastmasters Club 

 


"Joining the Toastmasters Club at Torrens not only helped me gain confidence in public speaking but also helped me to develop my leadership skills.

Firstly, I have become more comfortable to express myself with different intonation, expressions and body language to get the message across, and to deliver my presentation in front of an audience effectively. As a result, I was the only student who received a High Distinction in Project Management Capstone Presentation in my trimester.

Secondly, Toastmasters also runs classes to help students develop their leadership skills and to know how to formally run a business meeting.

Joining Toastmasters@Torrens club can help students to improve both their presentation and leadership skills, which are the two most essential skills that all employers seek.

Therefore, I urge all students to join Toastmasters @ Torrens Club today to reap the benefits and maximize their potentials."

- Nguyen Xuan Ngoc Huynh, Vice-President of Toastmasters Club

 


"During my studies at Torrens University, Toastmasters helped me gain confidence in speaking English, and I improved my IELTS speaking score to 6.5. Toastmasters has helped me to be more confident while I pursue my passion for social justice.

The experience I gained at Toastmasters has helped me to share my knowledge as a lecturer, and given me the courage to mentor young students from my home country, Vietnam." 

- Thi My Linh Le, Secretary of Toastmasters Club 

 


Event spotlight: Success Week 

"I attended three sessions during Success Week, namely Professional Branding, Grad Connection and the One-on-One Resume builder with David Choe. I thoroughly enjoyed all sessions, and found them very interesting and informative. It was an eye-opener for me as it made me realise the importance of creating my own professional brand, and how I can make LinkedIn and Facebook work for me. 

The session on Grad Connection made me realise that if I want to get a job in my field of study with a reputable company, networking will give me the opportunity to connect with industry professionals."

- Andreea Leibov, MBA/MPM student


"Torrens University periodically organises Success Week where students are provided with a number of professional development seminars. I participated in the Grad Connection workshop. It is a platform and website to help students who have graduated find job opportunities that match their degree.

The presenter, Zoey, was fantastic, and enthusiastic. I really appreciated how she went above and beyond. She was fabulous in explaining the content, giving us tips and highlighting the common mistakes to avoid as a graduate. The highlight of the session was information she shared about LinkedIn, and Emotional Intelligence. She shared personal moments of her career as examples which was honest and warm."

- Claudia De Luca, MBAA student

Mental Toughness

 

Excited Anxious Optimistic Worried

Free Curious Vulnerable 

 Confident Terrified

 Inspired

 

…and the list goes on. These are just some of the feelings you might experience as you start out on your study path or begin the new term. Sometimes you might feel excited and inspired; at other times you might feel overwhelmed, worried or anxious about success. We all have good days and bad days, and it’s how we respond to those challenges that really sets us up for success.

The 4Cs of Mental Toughness

Control:

 

Take control of your study and ask for the help you need to succeed. 

If you do have a problem, reflect on what you can go change the situation. Don’t be tempted to fall into the trap of blaming others – you are in control.

Commitment:

 

Stay focused and set goals.

Remember why you enrolled in the first place! Procrastination is our biggest enemy here and we all use it as a way to avoid stress at some point. It works in the short term but makes life difficult in the longer term. Beat it by setting measurable goals for study and stick to them.

Challenge:

Try to see challenges as opportunities rather than threats.

Got a difficult assignment coming up? Great – it’s a chance for you to show what you can do! All success involves some sort of risk, so calm the voice that says it’s too hard or you might fail. See it as an opportunity to give it a go and get the satisfaction of a job well done.

Confidence

 

Believe in yourself.

Be confident that you have the right and the ability to succeed and don’t be intimidated by others. Confidence comes from a mix of self-belief and external support, so ask your lecturers, success coach or counsellor if you need help.

 

Not feeling mentally tough today? Let us support you.

Contact your campus counsellor on counsellor.kentstreet@laureate.edu.au or make an appointment through the Student Hub. Book through the counselling page under Well-being and Diversity in the Student Support area.
