15 Jessica, Sudan ( sent from Thailand)

16 Jessica s Story After graduating I got an internship with an INGO that is American based. I was flown to Cambodia where I managed a research program into the current trends of human trafficking. I was able to design the research, hire a team of 6 to work on data gathering and I analyzed the data and wrote a report. The report was used by many other NGOs working in the field and also presented at a forum to those who work with government policy on the issue. After this finished I was employed to work on another of our programs in Cambodia as a program manager in a schools feeding program in partnership with the World Food Program. During this time I also cocoordinated relief distributed to families affected by some serious flooding in Cambodia and travelled to do some work in Burma. In April this year I was transferred to work in Darfur, Sudan. I have been working on a Women and Children s protection program, funded by USAID with some18,000 beneficiaries. In a few weeks I will be flying to attend a conference in Kenya. So it s been an amazing journey. I feel I have had so many great experiences in the work world which UQ had prepared me for! So thank you.

17 Angela, Canberra

18 From Angela Hi Trisch, As you know, I joined the Australian Public Service as a Graduate in 2007.just recently moved into my third really interesting position as a policy analyst at the Indigenous Policy Unit, The Treasury (Commonwealth). will be working on some pretty complex policy issues such as Indigenous health, education, child protection, remote families and communities, and employment through processes such as COAG and Northern Territory Emergency Response (!) Cheers, Ange

19 Dianne, Alice Springs

20 Dianne s office... Hi Trisch.some photos taken at the office. The first is from a trip last week - when we reached Docker river about 10 kms from WA border. We travelled 1600 kms to 3 communities to discuss various issues such as tobacco use, Volatile Substance Abuse (petrol, glue sniffing etc) and Alcohol and Gunja use. Second, a huge lake in the middle of the desert (goes for kilometres and thousands of different birds make it their home), and third is at Alpurrurulam, a small town located 20k away from the QLD border. My social science degree with UQ has opened up doors for me to work in the most amazing places (since completing my degree I have travelled throughout Australia for work). Di

21 Roy, Brisbane

22 Roy s new role... Hi Trisch, As you know, the field of criminal justice extends well beyond policing, courts and corrections. Restorative justice still is a key focus. It s about offenders acknowledging harm, accepting responsibility, and redress for victims....working on criminal justice can involve developing policies or programs such as Bail Support services for young offenders or reintegration programs. It may involve working directly with offenders on probation and parole, or evaluating programs, or doing research focused on finding evidence of what works in crime prevention and early intervention. There s also a lot of interest in community policing thinking about how communities can work with police, welfare and youth services to prevent crime. Regards, Roy

23 Banthida, Laos

24 Combining Major Fields of Study I currently work for World Vision in Laos. I'm the Community Health Coordinator and I'm responsible for Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) project and the Water and Sanitation Hygiene (WASH) project and any other community health related projects. ECCD aims to improve maternal and child health and well-being.i'm now at the stage of mainstreaming ECCD in 32 villages across 7 Area Development Projects (ADPs) in the southern province of Savannakhet in Laos. We are also starting to introduce ECCD to 3 other provinces. The knowledge, information and experience I gained from my studies in UQ has helped me immensely with my development work here in Laos. I really benefitted from the hands-on research, real world experience and analytical skills.

25 Susan, Brisbane (photos from South Africa)

26 Susan Studies Abroad I came to Cape Town to study for a semester (through the UQ Abroad Program) as it seemed to be an opportunity to put into context much of what I had learned in my BSocSc/BA, majoring in Development and Peace and Conflict Studies. During my time here I have taken courses at the University of Cape Town on South African politics, policy and administration, and gender, sexuality and politics. I have also undertaken an internship with a local NGO, the Southern African Media and Gender Institute (SAMGI), in which I worked on their "Xenophobia and Racism" project. I have also been lucky enough to engage in considerable travel (both before and during my semester) through East Africa, Namibia and other parts of South Africa. These experiences have been amazing and invaluable, and have given me a lot to reflect on. Highlights of my travels are many, and include the warm freshwater of Lake Malawi, and the dreamland of the dunes in Sossuvlei, Namibia.

27 Amy, Brisbane and Dhaka

28 Amy s Honours Experience I ve been researching a local food movement called permablitzing, which organises teams of volunteers to converge on backyards to build food producing gardens. I ve been spending my weekends with a shovel in one hand, and a notebook in the other, speaking to volunteers about the benefits to their community of growing food locally. Honours has been a challenging but very rewarding year. I ve been working alongside students researching topics as diverse as bin diving, community gardening, corporate social responsibility in mining, online video piracy, youth and conflict in East Timor, domestic violence, and indigenous identity in Chile. Now, I m heading to Dhaka, Bangladesh, to take up the position of Research and Communications Officer with a local NGO. looking forward to a new challenge!
