My Story — Student Voice Video Blog: Raymart Walker

Raymart Walker is a first-generation Australian and the first in his family to attend university. Originally from regional Queensland, Raymart relocated to the Sunshine Coast to pursue a Bachelor of International Studies at USC.

Over the past months, Raymart has experienced the layered impacts of COVD-19 firsthand. An early brush with the virus led to a stressful period of self-isolation, alongside an unsettling shift to online learning. Although Raymart faces uncertainty around his current employment and upcoming graduate opportunities, he has channelled his energy into helping other students feel connected and supported during this time.

Raymart is one of eight individuals invited by the NCSEHE to share their challenges and celebrate their triumphs during, and beyond, the COVID-19 pandemic through a series of Student Voice video blogs.
