Nayonika - UNSW Hero Testimonial

Nayonika Bhattacharya

Bachelor of Arts & Laws


When you picture degrees like mine you don't necessarily envisage students predominantly swamped in readings and essays to be doing the Heroes program. But this misnomer could not be more false! The Heroes program is designed for students from all backgrounds and whether you have 3 minutes of experience in tech (the kind who need to call the help desk, I'm guilty) or can design a website in 2 minutes, it is a space for everyone.

You'd think a program like this is traditionally designed for the tech smart but you realise everyone has a strong suit and everyone has an opportunity to contribute. You don't only enjoy conversations with industry experts but you learn how to brand yourself in the best way possible.

And in this competitive phase where students are energy, talent and skill rich but time poor, learning how to best brand yourself to be a smart worker and not a hardly successful hard worker - personal branding is the best way to put yourself out there! For those of you who have been hesitant to put yourselves out there or think you don't have much to bring to the table, you'll be the one's surprising all of us with how much you have hidden up your sleeve! I could not recommend this program more!
