My name is Meisha, and I’m studying the Masters of Sustainable Development at Murdoch. Previously I studied a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Accounting. However, towards the end of my undergraduate degree I became more interested in contributing towards sustainability and social issues, and decided to change my course of studies.
Similar to Brianna, I also have a small amount of overseas humanitarian experience. In 2019, I lived in India for a month working for a social enterprise that empowers women as leaders of change to distribute household products, such as solar lights and cooking appliances, that improve health, save time and save money. We spent a lot of time surveying in vulnerable communities, and the experience really confirmed my passion for working within aid and humanitarian work.
I really enjoyed the first zoom workshop last week, and am looking forward to learning more about everyone’s backgrounds, experiences, and stories!
