Who wants to be a creative million-dollar U:PASS leader? I do… I do…

Q: What went well in your sessions this fortnight and why?

A: Who Wants To Be A Millionaire- Biocomplexity Style. The students were highly enthralled by the activity. There was laughter, happiness and energy radiating from them and they requested that I repeat the activity in forthcoming weeks.


Q: Students lead in U:PASS for a wide variety of reasons – to mentor, to gain leadership skills, to improve communication skills, to get educational experience, to see what it’s like working for UTS.  What’s something you feel you have gained in one (or more) of these areas over the last fortnight? Why?

A: I have further improved my confidence and increased my self-esteem. Further, I feel U:PASS is assisting me in balancing my time more effectively and comprehending just how precious time really is.


Q: Other comments:

A: Although the job can be quite challenging and demanding, nothing is more satisfying when a light bulb switches on and a student understands a concept.
