Yanish Veerasawmy TAFE Queensland

Born and raised in Mauritius, Yanish is currently studying an Associate Degree in Civil Engineering at TAFE Queensland in Brisbane.

Yanish is described by his peers to be a positive, cheerful and supportive person with excellent leadership qualities. He was given a leadership award in 2018 by his University, recognising his positive influence in proactively leading by example and helping others. It is these qualities that will help Yanish to make a positive impact on his fellow peers and propose new initiatives to ensure students have an enjoyable experience while studying in Queensland.

Yanish would like to see the opportunity for more events and recreational activities, as a platform to help international students connect.

It is the beautiful landscape that attracted Yanish to Queensland as well as the wide range of people representing different cultures.  He loves that there is never a shortage of new things to discover and explore, and would encourage other international students to step out of their comfort zone and take advantage of the amazing coffee shops, food, people and culture.
