Elizabeth Shaw, a law student at The University of Western Australia has been chosen to represent Australian youth at the United Nations.
As an Australian Youth Representative, she will present the concerns of Australian youth to the UN headquarters in New York. Ms Shaw, 24, will travel to each Australian state and territory to meet young people, politicians, youth organisations and bureaucrats to identify issues relevant to young Australians.
In August she will meet fellow European Youth representatives in Europe.
The annual PROSH newspaper has once again been successfully delivered to the community of Perth by UWA students to support local charities.
Every March, a team of dedicated writers get together during a series of writers' nights to produce the PROSH paper. Here, the students dissect recent papers looking for current affairs, photos, and celebrity scandals to mock. At the same time, the Uni becomes abuzz with PROSH fever.
More than 75 girls from all over the state recently had the opportunity to spend a day as a university student at UWA. The Women in Science and Engineering initiative is aimed at increasing inclusivity and participation of females in Engineering, Computing and Mathematics through awareness, information and support.
Scientists begin with what is known and try to go beyond that point to extend the boundaries of human knowledge.
This means science is for those who have a sense of adventure, a desire to explore, to think creatively, to get to the root of things. As a scientist you will study the nature of the universe, its properties, the life that exists within it, and the laws that govern the behaviour of all matter.
The University of Western Australia is home to two science faculties, the Faculty of Life and Physical Sciences and the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences.
