International Youth Media Summit

Eveyln Seubert

"On behalf of our IYMS Board of Advisors and the delegates of the 2018 IYMS, I want to thank you so much for your address to our 61 delegates from 23 countries at our recently completed Summit.

Your life stories of discrimination and how you overcame those obstacles since coming to Australia were powerful and inspiring.  You’ve been there, so they could relate to you. Your friendly, open and inviting presence was proof that the actions you suggested to them have made a difference in your life.

Thank you for giving them a road-map of action to get through their struggle. Also most helpful was advice about knowing the governing laws and their rights, something young people sometimes fail to do but something that can really empower them to take action.

I personally loved the way you got everyone on their feet, and working together to get a “selfie” with you. You understand young people, and you know how to get everyone working together. And I saw on their faces the transformative power of your encouraging words.  Bravo!"

Dear Mr Amila


I write on behalf of Charles Sturt University to thank you for taking the time to visit the Albury- Wodonga campus and deliver a very information and engaging public lecture.

Your lecture was very well received by both University staff and community members in attendance and formed part of the University’s popular community engagement program and public lecture series.

We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about your inspiring journey, impressive career milestones and appreciated the intellectual conversation had during and post the event.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to engage with our staff and community members in areas of common interest, and for accommodating Charles Sturt University in your schedule of commitments.

Yours sincerely,

Associate Professor Laura Dan
Director, Industry and Community Engagement
