Georgia Thomas

Degree and Year of study: 

Second year

What inspired you to engage with the office and the role you currently hold?

I was sick of feeling like women’s interests are a political tool on campus. We continue to face unacceptable barriers to safety and proper representation on campus, and I wanted to ensure we have strong representatives who work to address this rather than sweep it under the rug.

What do you hope to achieve in your office and role in 2022? 

My primary goal is to improve the way the SRC engages and collaborate with women’s clubs on campus. We should be seeking to uplift both new and existing clubs, rather than placing barriers in their way. I also want to work on improving the safety and accessibility of our campus more broadly.
What Clubs are you involved with at UofA?

I am involved with the Politics and International Relations Association, the Labor Club and the Women’s Collective.

What led you to join the clubs(s)? 

I wanted to engage with like-minded students and meet new people. 
Favourite holiday destination/activity?

I love the South coast of WA. Perfect combination of great beaches, wineries, and stunning nature.
Favourite place to study on campus?

I am a big fan of studying outside if the weather allows it - there are lots of beautiful green spots on campus. In the bad weather, I prefer to opt for a coffee shop.
What advice would you give to students starting out at the University of Adelaide?

My biggest piece of advice is to not let the fear of being alone stop you from doing what you want to do. If you want to join that club but none of your friends do, join anyway! If there is an event that seems really interesting but you don’t know anyone going, go anyway! Don’t let worry stand in your way.
