Another 12 months flies by and with it comes the creative transition of NRSPP’s Swinburne University intern.
NRSPP farewells Kyla Fantin and Ruby Athanas and welcomes Grace Harries and Manal Rizwan.
A core element of NRSPP is its content creation and engagement, for which we rely on an intern program with Program Partner Swinburne University of Technology. NRSPP’s small budget goes a long way through our collaborative approach and partner support. This approach provides constant creative renewal and a chance to grow emerging students in being passionate about road safety by conveying data, messages and storytelling in engaging mediums.
“It has been an incredibly rewarding year where I have grown personally and professionally.” says Ruby.
“The experience I have gained from my time at NRSPP has been extremely valuable and I have enjoyed every minute of the journey.” says Kyla.
“One of the projects I am most proud of being a part of is the Heavy Vehicle Toolbox Talks (HVTBTs). Coming into this internship, I knew little about heavy vehicles and driver safety, so this has definitely been a learning process for me. Coming up with visually engaging and different ways to display this content has at times been challenging, but extremely rewarding.” says Ruby.
“The Car Parks Organisational Campaign was one of the highlights of the year for myself. Getting to coordinate a team and take the lead for the project really challenged me and helped me grow. Being lucky enough to present our work at the 2022 Parking Australia Convention and Exhibition (PACE) in Adelaide was something I will never forget.” says Kyla.
With the change in interns comes new ideas and creative quirks which the NRSPP welcomes as it helps keep our communications and knowledge translation fresh and engaging.
Grace Harries and Manal Rizwan are both currently in their third year of studying a Bachelor of Communication Design (Honours) at Swinburne University of Technology.
“I have a great passion for design and love using my creative skills in a positive light to create a better future.” says Manal.
“I am a passionate designer who enjoys creating branding, typesetting, and motion graphics and over the course of this internship I am eager to develop these skills further.” says Grace.
“My goal is to use this experience to help me grow as a person and a designer.” says Manal.
“Road safety is an extremely important sector and I am thrilled I have the opportunity to contribute to the many amazing programs that happen at NRSPP.” says Grace.
We thank Kyla and Ruby for all their efforts and wish them all the best in the future, and look forward to our next chapter with Grace and Manal.
