Amelia, a third generation Pilbara local was a critical part of the establishment of the PUC. Having grown up in the Pilbara, Amelia understood the challenges of undertaking universities studies whilst living in a remote region. Her guidance and empathy was greatly appreciated by all students. At the end of 2019 Amelia moved to Melbourne to continue her studies and was immediately employed by PUC’s partner university CQUni. She is an incredible ambassador for both the Pilbara and the PUC!
