Hello, and welcome to another wonderful year in the school of pharmacy! This year I am thrilled to be WAPSA president! I am a third-year bachelor student at Curtin University, and I have spent my degree having the biggest adventure possible. Pharmacy is an incredible profession to be a part of, and I would like to encourage everyone to make the most of all opportunities that come their way! I basically live, breathe, eat, sleep pharmacy, so youll often find me in the WAPSA room or roaming the floors of the pharmacy building at Curtin. Please feel free to come up and say hi/have a conversation – I love any excuse to talk about the profession! XOXO Prez
Hey everyone! My name is Rija, and I am your WAPSA Vice President for 2017!

I am super friendly and always here for a chat, so please feel free to contact me at anytime! email@example.com

I am very passionate about this field and all aspects related to Pharmacy. I enjoy volunteering and giving back to the community that i belong to, especially all things related to the elderly. When I am not burying my head in my books, you can catch me doodling away in my little drawing book, or browsing Netflix! Do come say Hi. I promise I I do not bite.

Rural & Indigenous
Hello! My name is Amy Owen, I’m a 4th year student and the 2017 Rural and Indigenous Chair for the WAPSA committee. This year I’ll be looking for new ways to promote rural and indigenous health. Currently I’m looking at organising fun volunteering trips to some remote WA locations and continuing with the annual John Curtin Weekend (JCW) adventure. Fun fact about me: I am originally a rural Darwin (NT) girl and moved to Perth when I was 18, so do know a little about the importance of rural health services in the community!

Also as a third year rep I'll be keeping all you guys up to date with what WAPSA is up to.

So if you see me around don't be afraid to say Hi, I'd love the distraction.
Hey guys, my name is Antoni and I'm one of your second year reps for WAPSA this year. My primary job is to keep you guys informed about what's going on in WAPSA with all of the awesome events that we have and to be a support for students in the myth and legend known as "second year". One of my other jobs is to help keep your hunger and thirst satisfied by stocking up the WAPSA tuckshop, if you have any special requests for what you would like to see stocked just come and see me I'll most likely be in the WAPSA room in my spare time. Also for you first years who have any questions about the course don't be afraid to ask.

WASSAP MY PHARMACY HOMIES Lewis is the name, WAPSA is my game - I am one of the two very good looking fourth year reps for this year. This is my fourth year on the committee, having been first year rep, social chair and president in past years, so I’ve been around the proverbial WAPSA block a few times! My job this year is to make sure that all us B.Pharm veterans know what’s what for WAPSA this year, so please come and have a chat with me if you want to know anything or get involved! And that goes for not only fourth years, but any one of you good looking friendos at Curtin or UWA. If you’re more technologically inclined, email me your queries and why you think dogs are/n’t better than cats at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on the Book of Faces. Peace, love and pharmacy yo \m/
Hi there! My name is Tessa and I am one of the Fourth year representatives this year! I have been involved with WAPSA for a few years now and can’t wait for the awesome year ahead with all my fellow WAPSA members. I was Charity and Pharmacy Awareness Chair last year and was part of the PCOC committee as the Volunteers chair, and they were both the most amazing experiences! If you ever have any questions about my past roles, WAPSA or pharmacy in general, I’m always up for a chat! Lewis and I are here to help make uni life just that little bit easier by updating and reminding you on the important things that will be going on during the year. We are both here for you to make sure that your voices are heard and to make sure everyone has made the most out of their final year of pharmacy! If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me via the fourth yeah Facebook group, personal message or via email@example.com. All the best! #WAPSAlove
First Year GEM
Hey everyone, I'm Sarah and I'm one of the first year GEM reps! I finished my undergrad (BSc Nutrition) at the end of 2013 and have been working in pharmacy full time since then, and I'm finding that Nutrition and Pharmacy combines very nicely! I'm really excited to be apart of the WAPSA committee for 2017.
Second Year GEM
Hey! I’m Ainslie and I am one of the second year GEM representatives.
At the end of 2015 I completed my Bachelor of Science degree at UWA where I majored in Pharmacology and Physiology. It was then I found my passion for pharmacy and decided to pursue this interest further at Curtin as a Masters (of Pharmacy) student.
I look forward to being part of WAPSA committee this year and hope to meet lots of like-minded individuals and share my passion of pharmacy!
First Year UWA
Hi everyone! I’m Amy and I’ll be your 1st year rep! I’m super excited to be on the committee and can’t wait to meet all the pharmacy students from Curtin and UWA! I did my undergraduate degree in Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, but decided that I didn’t want to be stuck in a lab for the rest of my life! I think Pharmacy will be a good career for me as I enjoy helping others, talking and learning new things! Please feel free to message me anytime, I love meeting new people.
I’m Rina and I am one of the two friendly first year GEM representatives. I completed my undergrad in Pharmacology & Japanese and decided to pursue pharmacy to focus more on community involvement. I love playing social soccer and during my spare time I love going to new cafes with my friends to suss out some good food. As a GEM representative, I will keep you up to date and informed on any upcoming WAPSA events as well as anything WAPSA can offer you. If you have any questions or want to have a chat to either Sarah or I, come say hey!
WapSA(-p) my fellow pharmacy students,
I’m Deb and I’ll be your first-year representative for 2017.
I am currently studying the Masters of Pharmacy at UWA. I was driven to study pharmacy after working as a pharmacy assistant since the age of 17, and I became inspired by the exceptional pharmacists I have had the pleasure of working alongside during this time. I desire to start a career in the community pharmacy setting upon completion of my pharmacy studies, where I feel most passionate in.
I am really excited to represent the committee this year and take part in organising and promoting the WAPSA events for you all to partake in. These events will comprise of both social and academic opportunities to enable you to network with many pharmacy students and pharmacists across the state and nationally who will sometime soon, become your colleagues!
Don’t be afraid to holla at me if you need anything, whether that be advice relating to pharmacy studies or a comforting and meaningful chat (this may or may not stem from the Italian in me ;)
