My name is Thanuji Jayathilake and I'm from Colombo, Sri Lanka. I currently study a Bachelor of Law and Bachelor of Arts at the University of Tasmania. I really enjoy the combined degree which gives me the versatility to learn from two fields that essentially complement each other.
Being an international student ambassador gives me the opportunity to meet and engage with new people while giving back to the community I live in. This is something I’m passionate about given that 2020 has been a difficult year and we need each other’s support now more than ever. I also enjoy reading and hopefully being able to start traveling around the world soon!
My favourite thing about Tasmania is the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Getting the chance to connect with nature, go on long drives down the beautiful roads of Tasmania and enjoy its many beaches has been great!
