Will

Hi there! My name is Will Salkeld and I am a second-year student at the ANU studying a Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy, and Economics. While academics is one of my passions, I am also a keen musician and cricket player. Uni can be a huge adjustment for everyone coming in for the first time, but it can truly be the most rewarding experience of your life once you learn the skills of time management and prioritisation. Outside my role as a Peer Writer, I am the Vice-President of the Interhall Arts Committee and an Academic Network Coordinator at Burgmann Culture.

Hi! My name is Adam and I’m in my third year studying PPE and Arts (majoring in Environmental Studies). I love reading, running, and painting. I am also a Resident Learning Advisor at Wright Hall, providing assistance with study skills and degree management. The transition from high school to university can be challenging, so I’d encourage you to make good use of the Peer Writers and other support services offered at ANU. Looking forward to meeting you!

Hi! My name is Belle, and I am a fifth year Arts/Law (Hons) student. I am a bubbly person and have a passion for helping others. I love writing, the beach and anything fashion related. Since moving to Canberra, I have been involved in all aspects of university life and hope to share some of my experiences with you. I hope to help make your transition to university as smooth as possible. I will approach each session with an enthusiastic and fun attitude to learning, whilst offering the level of support that each student requires. Whether you’re a first year or fifth year, I cannot wait to meet you!

Sabeehah

Hi there! My name is Sabeehah and I am a fourth year student studying Bachelor of Development Studies and Bachelor of Arts (majoring in International Relations). I am a current Senior Resident on campus, which consists of assisting residents with various aspects of university life. In my spare time I enjoy reading, trying new foods and photography. As an international student from Sri Lanka I am aware of the difficulty of adapting to an academic university context, especially if English isn’t your first language. But I want to assure you that those hurdles are temporary once you understand the right study and essay writing techniques.
