In this edition we hear from Jules Allen about her journey from MasterChef contestant to advocate for young people.

We also explore some alumni startup success stories including Kris Simmons and Karina Irby who were both named in the 40 under 40 top young entrepreneurs on the Gold Coast, and professional surfer turned app developer Sarah Beardmore.

Bachelor of Legal and Justice Studies alumnus, Zac Wone, discusses the contribution that Australian South Sea Islander people have made to the Australian economy and soil scientist, Jace Emberg, a Bachelor of Environmental Science alumnus, shares insights into his position in the Northern Territory and the work he is doing with local Indigenous groups.

We invite you to nominate for Southern Cross University’s Outstanding Alumnus of the Year and Young Alumnus of the year. Nominations will be open until Friday 7 July, so please consider nominating a colleague, family member or even self-nominating. Tickets will be available for this terrific event to be held on Friday 22 September, so watch for further details.

We look forward to keeping in touch!
