“I joined the MIDPA during my first semester at Monash because I was really keen to explore the Australian student life and it was a great opportunity for me to gain skills outside of the class room. MIDPA has been very supportive and helped me to settle and build a community away from home.”
– Omar Elkashawy 2019 Student Representative
“Last year I made the leap to join the MIDPA because I wanted to increase my skillset and be more involved in student life. I had no idea I’d be a part of such a fun and diverse family of students that has taught me more than I could ever imagine!”
– Emily Meggs 2019 President
