A word from your President (2013)

Welcome to SWIM!

 

I am honoured to be SWIM President this year. SWIM as an organization is very near and dear to my heart. As I moved up the ranks from First Year Rep to Academic VP and now on to the top job, SWIM has had a significant impact on my time as a medical student.

In my (biased) opinion, SWIM is the best club out there. The organization provides invaluable support on the academic, social and wellness fronts that really make a difference in students’ lives.

My favourite part about SWIM is that it exposes students to positive female role models from all over Queensland. Getting the chance to sit down with amazing female doctors and ask questions is always inspirational. It’s great to hear their tips and tricks for balancing a demanding career with staying fit and having families.

A background in Exercise & Sport Science makes me really appreciate the value of SWIMs exercise program. In the hustle and bustle of medical students’ lives, staying fit is often left by the wayside. SWIM’s events are a great opportunity to get out there and stay active.

I look forward to meeting all of you this year at SWIM events. I’m always happy to have a chat about the wonderful world of SWIM.
