Iris Zheng

Hey everyone, I am Iris Zheng Qiuyu from Jinan City, China, your 2021 LTSU Activities Officer. I have been experiencing a significant involvement working with the LTSU after my former role as the President of the Hubei University of Technology Student Union. It has always been my passion to stand up for student’s rights. As the LTSU Activities Officer, I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and competency with the LTSU and a firm believer in student advocacy. I would love to join forces with the LTSU Student Council to stand up and advocate to support and change student’s life to better. With LTSU, Together We Can Change for the betterments of Student’s Welfare!

My personal and professional goal is to always work for the student. My aim is to support the student’s welfare and to exercise their rights. I want to contribute and dedicate to the student’s service by organising various activities and events to make their journey more exciting and memorable.

I would like to bring changes to the typical student’s lifestyle, where many rarely partake in any activities other than their studies. I am looking forward to work on this with my Co-Officer, Lani Dumas to organise more interesting and exciting online and on-campus activities that would benefit the student. We need to integrate more during our student’s life to build our network.

Some of the proud moments and accomplishments with LTSU is when I arrived at the Consulate General of China and grabbed the 150 Spring Festival goody bags and distributed it to the Chinese students in the Bundoora and City Campus and Sydney City Campus. As the student representative of La Trobe University, I had participated in the New Year's International Student Day Cruise organised by the Australia's Victoria Federation of Chinese Association. In addition, I also collaborated with our sponsor, the Hungry Panda to assist us in various activities last semester. We also had put up stalls to sell our LTSU merchandises at the Bundoora and City Campus. We also proudly assisted and distributed free bubble teas at the Bundoora Campus and free delicious food boxes food to the City Campus.

During my leisure time, I love to cook, playing my guitar, doing yoga, hiking and paying badminton.

Lani Dumas

Hey I’m Lani, your 2021 LTSU Activities Officer. I am from a beautiful region in New Zealand known as the ‘Far North’ and currently, residing in Melbourne for almost three years. I am doing my Bachelors in International Relations and my personal goal is to CHANGE and reanimate our student life. Despite the COVID-19 circumstances, as the President of LIRA along with my team and now as the Activities Officer, I do believe we have achieved that goal and continue to do so!! I think if we are to go any further beyond this goal is to Shut Down the LTSA, which is critical to support the students interests.
