My name is Lauren Clay. I am a student at RMIT and I am currently undergoing my Bachelor of Communications: Professional Communications (Honours).
I have always enjoyed my studies and related extra curricular activities. I intend on continuing to work with and within education institutions, perhaps one day as an Academic. I have been a student representative for the last two years, and have also previously worked in the event organisation team for the Communications Ball, 2005.
I am also currently working as a Policy Officer for External Relations and Strategic Coordination at the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (a bit of a mouthful). My role at the Department has involved, speech writing, editing, briefing collaboration for the Secretary, event organisation and delegations of duties. Although this work may seem quite dry, I enjoy the shifting responsibilities and the unpredictable environment that I work within.
My personal interests include tennis, jogging, writing and drinking wine, particularly anything from the Marlborough region of New Zealand! I also love the outdoors and have a keen interest in astronomy, followed closely by reading about any fantastic scientific theory. Having said this, I should note that I have a strong background in philosophy, and have studied all of the philosophy courses that RMIT has to offer.
I enjoy socialising and yet can equally engage myself with great passion in my studies. I love my job, my studies, my friends, my family, and the idea that I have many exciting adventures ahead of me. Above all else, my ultimate goal in life is to be happy. I find immense enjoyment in helping others, and through constantly challenging myself.
