Testimonial – Jianyu He

I think joining SUPRA as a volunteer is the best part of my life. I have formed friendships with SUPRA members, and become one of them in the volunteer group. I have explored my interest in hiking and travelling, enjoying the beautiful nature in Australia. I have become more outgoing, positive and patient.

About the volunteer logo

Volunteers are an essential part of SUPRA, and in order to enhance the quality of volunteer services, we have designed a logo.

The compatibility of different colours symbolises students united from all around the world for the greater good.

We believe in the value of ‘students working for students’, and look forward to gathering all those dedicated to this cause.
