For one ambitious, future lawyer, a longstanding commitment to helping others and connecting with influential leaders to achieve real change will follow her throughout her career alongside a drive to pass on everything she has learnt so far.
In this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Naomi Neilson is joined by final-year Australian National University (ANU) international securities and laws student Angelique Nelis to chat about some of her many incredible achievements and how everything she has done has served vulnerable communities and her peers.
Some of these accomplishments include studying at The Hague Academy of International Law, participating in the Change the World Model United Nations (CWMUN) in New York and representing not-for-profit groups like the NSW Women’s Alliance and the Alliance of Girls’ Schools Australasia.
Angelique has also connected with a number of influential and inspirational leaders to inform the best practices for helping others. Before flying to New York to represent Samoa as a CWMUN delegate, Angelique reached out and connected with the Samoan high commissioner in Canberra to discuss the very real issues.
In the episode, Angelique also shares advice for other students on following a similar path, talks about mentoring and shares her international law ambitions.
