Student life Volunteering

Volunteer and make new friends!

Hola Amigos!

As a film student, I love to be involved wherever there is a camera! Recently I had the opportunity to be in front of a camera! How? By volunteering to help my friends at QUTIC. Volunteering is a good way to get involved in projects that are related to your course, make new friends and be of assistance.

I did an English course at QUTIC, so I still hear about the activities they are running and they invited me to be part of a film shoot recently. It was an amazing experience because this time I was in front of a camera and not backstage!

The ‘talent’  (lol)  for this shoot was international students from many countries. This was a great opportunity to meet more students. You never know if these new students might become friends because once you share moments and experiences you are opening part of your life to others, and that makes a genuine connection.

One student I met was from Fiji. He likewise has studied at QUTIC and is now going to do a double degree in Engineering and Business.  The photoshoot was a lot of fun. We had the opportunity to talk about our own culture, traditional types of food and we ended talking about movies and TV series that are trendy or we would like to watch. Don’t forget that I am passionate about the film industry!

The photoshoot was a great experience not only because we will be part of QUTIC’s upcoming promotional material, but also because I had the opportunity to make new friends! I am so excited to see the final promotional material!

Where can you volunteer?

My name is Cynthia and I'm from Mexico. I have a very creative personality and a passion for creating content that will make a difference. I previously completed a Bachelor of International Marketing in Mexico. I found as a marketer the need of creating content or telling a story is not only the core of marketing to attract audiences, but it is also drives everything you do. Following my passion for story telling and my fascination for theatre, I decided to fulfill my dream of study drama in Mexico. I strongly believe that it’s never too late to make your dreams come true. I'm currently studying a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Film, Screen and New Media) at QUT and my dream is to become a film-maker. In my blog, I want to share my creative personality, Latin perspective with a sense of humor.
