Buddhipriya Padukka - Academic Rep 2013/2014
Name: Buddhipriya Padukka
Previous University: Monash University
Hometown: Melbourne, VIC
Being Sri Lankan in heritage, I have quite a long name, but many have gradually shorted this to either Buddhi or Buds. I moved to Australia about 20 years ago and I grew up in Queensland and Victoria. Before heading to Wollongong in 2013, I studied radiography at Monash University. Medicine is a great passion for me, and I have found Wollongong and the GSM to be a most exciting period of my life. My interests outside of medicine include cricket, gym, politics, debating, business and dance (hip-hop).
As academic reps for 2014, Ill be working alongside James to bring you all things academic. I look forward to working with all at the GSM in creating a memorable 2014!
