Joel

President

Hello! My name is Joel (He/Him), and I am so happy that you have found this space 🙂 I am a third-year psych student who has been privileged to take on the role as the 2023 president of FPSA.   

As the president this year I wish to continue FPSA’s mission of providing psychology students with calm, helpful, loving and cheerful energy so that the university experience can be as pleasant as possible for all students. The heavy onslaught of covid sadly diminished a lot of student interaction as more and more students now opt to study externally. Drawn from personal experience, not having many to relate with or talk to in regard to Uni-life and assignments, evoke feelings of isolation and loneliness in my beginning years of Uni which made studying a lot less motivating and enjoyable. My social expectations of Uni Life definitely were not met and from speaking to other students this let-down I have found to be common. Therefore, I wish to try and be part of the change in reawakening the interactive and social connections between students again so that the Uni experience can be more motivating, joyous, and adventurous. 

Diya

Executive Vice President

Hey everyone! My name is Diya and I’m FPSA’s Vice President for 2023. 

I am currently in the 2nd year of Bachelors of Psychological Science. I started volunteering with FPSA last year as the events director where my role was to organise fun and exciting events. 

I am really excited to embark this new journey and I look forward to creating a safe, cheerful, and enjoyable environment for our Psychology students! 

Mark

Immediate Past President

Hey there! My name is Mark and I am the ex-president of FPSA.

I am a part time fourth year BPS (Honours) student and third year FPSA committee member. In my first year at FPSA, I was both the First Year Representative and Education and Careers Officer. In my second year I was the President, and I am now in an advisory role as the ex-president.

My goal this year is to help the committee continue the success of the association from previous years, and to advise the current leadership team based upon my experiences 🙂

Naz

General Secretary

Hello, fellow psychology enthusiasts! I’m Naz, and I’m thrilled to be a part of FPSA as a general secretary in my final year of study. Before my current journey in psychology, I also studied Medical Science, which gave me valuable insights into the human body and mind. As a third-year Psychological Science Bachelor’s student, my journey has been an incredible learning experience, and I’m excited to contribute my passion and dedication to FPSA.

In my time at Flinders, I’ve come to recognize the importance of a strong and supportive community for psychology students. It can be challenging to navigate the demands of academia and prepare for the transition beyond university. Therefore, I’m committed to making FPSA a welcoming space where all students can find support, engage in meaningful discussions, and forge lasting friendships.

Feel free to reach out to me or the FPSA team to learn more about our upcoming events and opportunities. Let’s make this year memorable and impactful!

Dani

Executive Assistant

Hey psychology students! My name is Danielle (she/her) and I’m the Executive Assistant for FPSA. I recently graduated from the Flinders psychology honours degree and have started studying the Master of Counselling (Behavioural Health) this semester at Flinders.

Last year I was the Executive Assistant, and Education and Careers Officer. I worked on the FPSA Recommends guides, put together a recommended electives list, started a petition to increase funding for opening more spots in psychology masters degrees, and created a new website. I also organised an ABN number, created new email addresses (flindersfpsa.com emails), managed online Flinders Psychology communities, and more… In the year of 2021, I was a General Committee member who contributed with ideas and also maintained the FPSA LinkedIn page, Twitter page, and Discord server.

This year I am hoping to continue helping out with what I started in my previous years as a committee member. Don’t be afraid to say hi if you find me on the FPSA socials or on campus 🙂

Lauren

Sub-Committee Member

Hey everyone, my name is Lauren and I have just joined FPSA as a general committee member. I am in the third year of my Bachelor’s degree in Psychological Science.

My first year of uni was in the height of COVID, like many of you I have only returned to campus this year; spending most of last year online as well. I’m excited to be emersed in the uni campus community life again. I found my first year of uni very daunting and a big change from high school, I was also very shy and did not always seek out help (there is nothing wrong in asking for help). I’ve joined this committee hoping to help others like me and make people feel like they belong at uni.
