Marysa de Silva

International Officer

Hello everyone, my name is Marysa, your new GUPSA International Officer. I have a wealth of cultural experience, as I was immersed in various cultures from a very young age. I’m from Sri Lanka, but I grew up in Egypt, Kenya, Malaysia and here in Australia (Melbourne to be exact). I completed my Bachelor of Science (Zoology and Ecology) at UQ and soon after worked for a couple animal wildlife organizations in Kenya and Australia. I have since been working towards my Master of Primary Teaching at Griffith University. I am very grateful to have this opportunity, and I look forward to working with my fellow GUPSA board members and supporting all Griffith University postgraduate international students.
