Staff Spotlight



Fun fact: I ran away from home when I was 19 but due to a severe alcohol allergy, I was unable to drink during my adolescent and early twenties. By the time I was twenty-five, this helped me save for my own house, which I really REALLY wanted to buy because I wanted a Chow Chow. A Chow Chow is a dog breed.

Above is said dog who I have named, Bjorn (from the Vikings show)

Fave cuisine: Paksiw na Pata (Paksiw = dishes cooked in vinegar, Pata = leg/foot) Paksiw na Pata is a pork dish that is cooked in vinegar. It has an unusual vegetable: the banana heart.

Nationality: Australian (but previously from the Philippines). My parents immigrated here when I was 10 years old, and we received our citizenship years ago. Yes, I am fluent in Tagalog.

Fave pastime/hobby: I tried every single hobby you could think of in art and crafts, but my favourite past time is MSN Messenger and getting to play games like “Sam and Max Hit the Road” or “Day of the Tentacle”.

Job role & how Jozzelle can help you: As a design mentor with plenty of freelance experience, I can give insight and advice into how Australian clients or employers can be approached.



Fun fact: I can touch my nose with my tongue. 😛

Fave cuisine: ITALIAN!!! A proper PIZZA!

Nationality: Spanish (yes, I say “ole, ole ????????” sometimes…)

Fave pastime/hobby: Anything creative, from doing music, to painting, cooking, even organising my house (we can get very creative in re-decorating homes, can we? ????)

Job role & how Monica can help you: Mentor in Diploma in Project Management. Do you have a project or are interested in optimising yours? That is my THING! ????

City Otter

A brand by Diploma of Leadership and Management student; Gabriele Vaineikyte

City Otter is a brand focusing on pedestrians’ safety by offering handmade reflective scrunchies.

My goal is not only to create fashionable accessories and also to educate people about the importance of wearing reflectors.
Ever since I was a child, I recognized the importance of wearing reflectors. However, it always seemed like there weren’t enough options available. I tried my best to wear reflectors but over time they vanished from my outfit. When walking in the unlit street or crossing the road after the sun was down I kept questioning myself – why did it happen and what can I do to change it.
The answer was quite obvious – there is no doubt that reflectors are extremely important, but a rare person is able to choose a reflector that he likes and suits him from the available offers these days. While style should not be the sole factor in deciding between safety and aesthetics, we have to acknowledge that it does influence our choices, even subconsciously. To protect people and help not only pedestrians but also drivers, I created City Otter. City Otter offers handmade reflective scrunchies designed not only to be worn as a hair accessory but also to be worn as a wristband.
