Isabel Chong

Isabel is in her third year of studying a Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Laws. In 2016, she was on the Dean’s List for the Faculty of Business.

Isabel is passionate about community service, particularly aiding the disadvantaged and those affected by social justice issues. She is a research and advocacy volunteer with Supporting Asylum Seekers Sydney at the Villawood Immigration Detention Centre. Here, she liaises with Legal Aid lawyers to help detainees gain legal representation. She has also enjoyed volunteering with the Exodus Foundation, the Salvation Army and Beyondblue. Having recently been elected to the subcommittee of Oxfam UNSW, Isabel is excited to empower students to take action in the fight against poverty and human rights issues worldwide.

When taking a break from studies and work, Isabel loves baking orange and poppy seed muffins and trying (but failing) to teach her dog basic tricks. She may often be found unwinding in Hunter Park at Balmoral Beach, her happy place.
