“I’ve been with Challenges Abroad Australia since 2014, and the most rewarding part of my role is seeing the joy and excitement that our participants bring to the rural communities we work with around the world. Spending time in Cambodia earlier on in my career gave me the pleasure of seeing first-hand the difference that our programs make! This experience really opened my eyes to what it means to be a Global Citizen.”

STUDENT ENGAGEMENT MANAGER

“My opportunities to travel, combined with my Indian heritage, is what sparked my interest in different cultures, and excitement about exploring new places. My passion for travelling took on new meaning after I participated in an overseas volunteer trip to Cambodia during my time at university. Since then, I have been focused on being more sustainable and making a difference (whether overseas or locally). In my role at Challenges Abroad I aim to inspire like-minded individuals to take on a similar challenge and take action as Global Citizens.”

ANDY BROWN,
HEAD OF STRATEGY AND ENGAGEMENT

“My passion for Learning Abroad is personal and professional. I took a 'year-out' from my undergraduate degree to volunteer with an International NGO in Cambodia. The experience was the foundation of my career in international education and development. I've worked in the Learning Abroad space for more than 15 years and joined Challenges Abroad in 2023. I love the social enterprise basis of the organisation and the opportunity to help good people do great things!”
